Southwark Mysteries Walk

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

John Constable, author of The Southwark Mysteries and Secret Bankside – Walks In The Outlaw Borough brings history vividly to life, transforming our perception of the oldest - and wildest! - part of London.

This walk explores the sites of the Clink and Marshalsea prisons, The Tabard Inn, St Mary Overie dock, Winchester Palace, Bankside's theatres, bear-pits and 'stews', and Cross Bones, the outcasts' burial ground.

John leads us deep into the secret history of the Outlaw Borough, weaving the stranger-than-fiction stories of these sites with the poems they inspired. The walk offers a fascinating insight into Bankside and Borough through the eyes of a local writer.

  • 2pm (meet 1.45pm)
  • £8 (+ booking fee) in advance; £10 on day subject to availability
