Visit to Southwark Cathedral
Friday 30 November 2018

Southwark Cathedral is the Mother Church of the Anglican diocese of Southwark, which extends from the south bank of the River Thames as far south as Gatwick Airport. Although it has only been a Cathedral since 1905, it has been a place of worship for over 1000 years.

We will make our own way by train (the Cathedral is close to London Bridge station) and meet at the Cathedral by 10.45 for a guided tour, describing the history of the church and its many important memorials. At 12.30 we can have lunch together in the Cathedral refectory. At 14.00 there be a further guided tour to hear about the notable examples of stained glass in its windows.

The cost of the trip is £17, not including travel or lunch.

The trip is limited to 30 participants.

Booking will open at October's lecture meeting.
