Southwark Cathedral is London’s oldest cathedral church building. It’s believed that there has been a church on the site since AD 606, or even earlier. Southwark Cathedral stands at the oldest crossing point of the tidal Thames, at what was the only entrance to the City of London across the river for centuries.
Today the area of Stratford, is something of a ‘mini city’ and home to the stunning Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. The park offers a visitor experience like no other. Covering 560 acres, it’s the largest recreational space in Europe created in more than 100 years, and is free to visit every day of the week.
