The Outlaw Borough Walk

 


This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Come and find out about Southwark's medieval outlaws. London has always been two cities, north and south of the river. And nowhere has the divide been sharper than around London Bridge, where for centuries the city faced the Liberty of the Clink, a haven for outlaws.

The medieval Bankside was a waterfront strip of theatres, taverns, bear-pits, and licensed brothels or 'stews'. Such things were forbidden within the city walls, but there was always a thriving ferry trade to row the gentlemen over in search of forbidden pleasures.
