Southwark Cathedral is London's oldest Gothic church. A church has occupied the site for over 1400 years. It has connections with William Shakespeare, US-university benefactor John Harvard and a Mohegan Indian chief. Visit the tomb of the first English poet, and learn about a 17th century doctor and his pills. Drop by on Monday lunchtimes for an organ recital or Tuesday afternoons (3:30pm) for a short music recital. Evening concerts are also part of the Cathedral's programme of events.
