Southwark away from the tourist trail
Many people are now familiar with the sites of Bankside but this walk delves into another side of Southwark away from the tourist trail. Two small art galleries, a former chocolate factory that has recently been given a new lease of life, a delightful garden created by a Victorian philanthropist, two secluded Georgian squares, the wall of the prison where Charles Dickens’ father was incarcerated for debt and “Little Dorrit’s Church” all feature. Hear about a murderous married couple, a flamboyant fire chief and a local heroine while we wind our way around the lesser known corners of this intriguing district.
