For groups of ten or more, we offer walking tours around the area on many topics that touch the life of the Cathedral across the last one thousand years

Led by our experienced and knowledgeable Cathedral Guides, this is an opportunity to explore Southwark at a leisurely pace, including stops and visits at sites of interest. Group leaders may wish to combine a tour of the Cathedral with an escorted walk in the surrounding area.
