Pass Perk

Attractions where public entry is free, have added benefits for London Pass holders. Upon arrival, grab your free souvenir guidebook worth £4.50.

London Pass holders can take home a free souvenir guidebook (available from the shop). If you’re in need of refreshment you can also enjoy a 10% discount off purchases in the Southwark Cathedral Cafe.

Originally a priory, the main structure of Southwark Cathedral was built between 1220 and 1420; US university benefactor John Harvard was baptised here and the cathedral has links to Elizabethan theatre, including a memorial to William Shakespeare (Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre Tour & Exhibition is a short walk along the Thames path).

The Cathedral is still very much an active London church and is the mother church of the Anglican Diocese of Southwark; it’s also surrounded by the historic Borough Market – one of the capital’s biggest foodie attractions.

Main visiting times: 10.00 – 17.00.
Shop: Monday – Saturday: 10.00 – 17.30, Sunday: 10.00 – 16.00.
Southwark Cathedral Cafe: Monday – Friday: 09.00 – 17.30, Saturday: 9.30 - 17.30, Sunday: 9.30 – 17.00.

"We went to see so much more than if we had to pay individually. Was nice paying for it before the trip so didn't have to bring extra money and worry about running short. We also got the travel pass and restaurant discount book and discovered some very nice places to eat that we wouldn't have known about. Planning on coming back in 2014 and will buy another one! Recommend it 200%!"
