Welcome by the Dean of Southwark

Southwark Cathedral is an Anglican Cathedral on the south bank of the River Thames, set in the heart of the changing and thriving Bankside community.

We hope that you will find here information about our life that will make you want to come along to visit us.  If you do so you will be assured of a very warm welcome and you will encounter an oasis of peace and prayer.

Whoever you are, the community at Southwark Cathedral wants to welcome you.  Explore these pages and come to share in our life and encounter the Living God who, in Jesus Christ, makes his home amongst us.

Child and Adult Safeguarding

Southwark Cathedral takes the safeguarding and care of children and vulnerable adults very seriously. Further information about how we promote a safer church can be found at our Safeguarding page here

We're Good to Go

During the first lockdown in 2020  the Cathedral was awarded the Visit England 'We're good to go' Industry Standard.  This is the official mark to signal that a tourism and hospitality business has worked hard to follow Government and industry COVID-19 guidelines and has a process in place to maintain cleanliness and aid social distancing.
