The London Borough of Southwark

The London Borough of Southwark

Southwark Southwark is the historical home of the capital's arts and entertainments industry. London's first theatres, the Globe, the Hope and The Rose were all built there in the 16th century and Shakespeare's plays first performed there. The rebuilt Globe theatre is now one of the best theatres in London, while the neighbouring Tate Modern, housed in the stupendous Bankside Power Station, is among the world's most popular art galleries. London's modern City Hall and the magnificent, gothic Southwark Cathedral, complete a remarkable set of buildings that show five centuries of London's architectural achievements. Next to Bankside, the borough takes in the up-and-coming areas of Bermondsey, Camberwell and Peckham, where Only Fools and Horse was set. This part of London is currently popular with young professionals and artists due to its proximity to the centre of town and low property prices. Nearby Borough Market is heaving with fresh, organic food and drink. In the south of the borough lies leafy, suburban Dulwich which forms a welcome contrast to the bustling energy that defines the rest of one of London's oldest areas.
