Southwark Cathedral

Not part of the nursery rhyme but still wonderful to visit.

Southwark Cathedral from Borough MarketSouthwark Cathedral is just a couple of minutes away from London Bridge Tube station, just behind Borough Market.

Like most cathedrals the building is based around a huge nave stretching from the foot of the church where we enter upto and past the main altar to a series of small chapels in the retrochoir.

Southwark CathedralAt the entrance is a small icon with candles for individual prayers and also a huge font,with covering rising up.
