Southwark is a very historic borough of London; it got its name in the 9th century, and was first settled during the Roman period. Located directly south of the River Thames and forming part of Inner London, Southwark is home to many fabulous landmarks, including the Tower Bridge, the Millenium Bridge, and the London Bridge. Shard London Bridge, which is under construction, at the moment, will be the tallest building in the entire European Union when complete. Also of note in this area are its many historic places of worship, including Charles Spurgeon's Metropolitan Tabernacle, Southwark Cathedral, St. Mary's Cathedral, and even St. George the Martyr, the oldest church in Greater London, dedicated to England's Patron Saint. Another interesting tidbit about Southwark is that it's the place where novelist Charles Dickens grew up, and where many of his famed stories take place.
