London SE1 9DA
In 606 a convent was established on the south bank of the River Thames on the site of the present-day Southwark Cathedral. The life, diversity and character of the area are revealed in the tombs and monuments within the church. Among them is that of John Gower (c.1330-1408), poet and friend of Geoffrey Chaucer (whose Canterbury Tales begin in Southwark). There is also a memorial to William Shakespeare, who spent much of his life in Southwark. The present building retains the basic form of the Gothic structure built between 1220 and 1420 (following the Great Fire of Southwark in 1212) and various areas were adapted or repaired in the following centuries, followed by a full reconstruction of the nave in the late 19th-century reconstruction.
