A Walk through Southwark

Southwark

This walk takes in parks, garden squares, churchyards, community gardens and other green spaces which reflect the rich industrial, ecclesiastical, literary and medical history of Southwark.

All the gardens are open during daylight hours, unless otherwise indicated. Seating is provided in most gardens, and they are accessible to wheelchairs, except where stated.

Please be aware of your personal safety when walking. Walking in pairs or groups is recommended. Use designated road crossings where possible. A detailed map should be used in conjunction with this walk.

The walk is divided into three separate sections, which can be combined to form a single walk of three to four hours, depending on the time spent in gardens.

The walk starts and finishes at Borough underground station (Northern line). Lift available.
