21 April 2012 – An Historic Southwark Walk
Brothels, Bishops and the Bard – an Historic Southwark walk – Listened to notorious Bankside Stories, discovered ‘The Clink’, the oldest prison in London, saw Southwark Cathedral with its Shakespearean connections, as well as the reconstruction of Francis Drake’s Golden Hinde, and Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre. Ended up at the Tate Modern Art Gallery housed in the vast space of the former Bankside Power Station, with St. Paul’s Cathedral on the opposite side of the river. What a great way to spend a Saturday morning! Thank you to Brian Cookson (SCOLA tutor) for taking us on this historic walk!
