There’s no shortage of interesting history either – Southwark Cathedral’s Gothic presence is just next door and around the corner is the Golden Hindi-Sir Francis Drake’s beautiful galleon dating back to the 1570s. Borough High Street a busy hub of great bars and restaurants including The George, the only pub owned by the National Trust and London’s only surviving galleried coaching inn.
