If you want to see what it was like to be improsened a few hundred years ago this place will give you an idea. There are both replicas and actual pieces from the time period of the prison. We enjoyed it and found it very...More

Southwark
Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some
