Free Souvenir Guidebook at Southwark Cathedral
London Pass Benefits:
Free 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 get a 10% discount of purchases in the Rectory Restaurant.
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. Refectory Restaurant: Monday – Friday: 09.00 – 18.00, Saturday & Sunday: 10.00 – 18.00.
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 Refectory Restaurant.
When you’re planning your visit to Southwark church, remember there are a number of other tourist attractions in the London Bridge area that are free with London Pass including HMS Belfast, The Old Operating Theatre Museum and Herb Garret and the Tower Of London.

"I would absolutely recommend buying the London Pass if you have 3 or more days to spend exploring London. Buy it ahead of time, online and research what is available and decide what attractions you might be interested in. A top 10 sort of thing, and then any others that might be of interest. It gives you the freedom to visit many popular sites without the hassle of standing in long lines for tickets. I also liked that I wasn't spending all kinds of money every day on attractions and money did not enter into my decisions on what I wanted to do since my admissions where already paid for. I very much enjoyed my visit in London and I think having the London Pass allowed me to see more than I would have, had I not had it. Thank you!!"
