Southwark Cathedral and Borough Market

After taking the tube to London Bridge the teens enjoyed exploring Southwark Cathedral and Borough Market.

Located just by the river Thames, Southwark cathedral is the oldest gothic church in London. The students enjoyed walking around the stunning interior, discovering a memorial to Shakespeare and the Harvard Chapel, a tribute to university founder John Harvard who was born in the parish!






We then took a trip to Borough Market, one of the oldest and largest food markets in London! For centuries the market has sold local produce such as fruit, vegetables and meat to Londoners. Today the market is also home to stalls from all over the world and the students were able to get a taste for some delicious Spanish paella, French cheese and much more!






Keep an eye on the blog- the teens are off to the Houses of Parliament tomorrow!
