Tour led by Jo Brewster.
The cathedral's forefathers founded St Thomas' hospital and a nursing sister became the first deaconess of the diocese.
There are several other medical links and these, together with a visit to the nearby Guy's Chapel, make this an interesting and informative tour.
Part of the 'Southwark Cathedral Uncovered' series of themed tours.
Cathedral guides will recall those commemorated within the building and uncover the rich and colourful history of the church and area through its monuments, tombs, windows, and artefacts.
No booking necessary. All tours will commence in the Nave.
