    This trip wasn't plan and I m glad that I passed by the cathedral. The stainless glasses and memorials bring you back all the way to the medieval time. Most interesting story is a homeless cat found h...  more »

    Nice small cathedral next to the madhouse at Borough Market. Incredible to see that you can get away from all the hubbub at Borough Market (which we loved), and say a quiet, peaceful prayer 100 steps ...  more »

    This is a beautiful church that has only been upgraded to Cathedral in the last 20 years. It is right in the heart of the community along the South Bank, Borough Market borders the cathedral gardens. ...  more »

  • Exceptional architecture. Outside this building looks incredible, probably one of the better churches in London. Inside it is quite spacious, a number of interesting art works on the walls. Only downside is you have to pay for a "license" to be able to take photographs inside and then they still want you to give a contribution to costs. Definitely worth a visit though; and with numerous other interesting places within the neighbourhood.
  • Wonderful place to take a moment from life's bustle and have a bit of time to yourself. It's an historic building with architecture to match, and well located in modern London next to a major station, London Bridge and Borough Market.
  • Amazing. Not only the interior, but the exterior too! I love whole Southwark.
  • Huge size cathedral in Gothic Style Architecture. There are some famous graves, plus this church hosts a few community groups, charity gatherings etc.
  • A lovely and peaceful place to visit to get away from the rush outside the walls.

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
