The London Pass London Pass Benefits: Souvenir Guidebook worth £4.50 with The London Pass

Located in the historic Bankside area and adjacent to London Bridge, Southwark Cathedral is London’s oldest Gothic building.

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.

The London Pass gives you a souvenir guidebook from the shop without further payment. Holders are offered a 10% discount off any food purchase in the Southwark Cathedral Cafe.

"Experience London easily and at a fraction of the price with the London Pass. Absolutely love the London Pass! It was easy to order online, and we had absolutely no issues with it while we used it around town. We purchased the 3 day pass with travel and used it every day to numerous different sights. If you are sight seeing London for the first time, this is definite buy as it'll save you on admission to almost all of the places that you would want to go!"
