Southwark Cathedral Project

Southwark Cathedral: A Brief History

Southwark Cathedral, formally known as the Cathedral and Collegiate Church of St Saviour and St Mary Overie, is an iconic landmark nestled on the south bank of the River Thames in London, England. Its rich history dates back over a millennium, with evidence suggesting religious activity on the site as early as the 7th century.

Originally founded as a nunnery in AD 606, the cathedral has undergone numerous transformations over the centuries, reflecting the changing architectural styles and cultural influences of each era. From its medieval beginnings to its reconstruction after the Great Fire of London in 1666, Southwark Cathedral stands as a testament to the resilience and enduring spirit of faith.

Today, the cathedral serves as a vibrant hub of worship, community engagement, and cultural heritage, welcoming visitors from around the world to marvel at its stunning architecture and explore its storied past.
