Southwark is a district of Central London, originally a parish in Surrey. It is bounded by the River Thames in the north and is one of London’s oldest districts. In the nineteenth century it experienced depopulation as an inner city area, but in recent times has undergone renovations and now has a population of 287,000. Its most famous buildings are City Hall (the offices of the Greater London Authority), the Globe Theatre and Southwark Cathedral.
