People walking through the Borough Market

Whether you’re an art enthusiast, a young person looking for fun, or anything in between, Southwark may be the place for you.

With underground stations such as London Bridge and Borough connecting to the Northern Line, transportation is easy and convenient.

If art is your thing, the Tate Modern may be the perfect attraction. With art from artists such as Meraud Guevara and Andy Warhol, the Tate Modern is the number one destination for any art enthusiast in the area. But be prepared: the Tate splits into two halves and spans more than seven floors.

Shakespeare’s Globe, a historic theatrical venue, is located only 5 minutes away from the Tate and has affordable performances on all year round for all ages. This version of the venue was rebuilt in 1997, however it is based on the original Globe, designed in 1599, which was the home of many of William Shakespeare’s historic plays.

The Borough Market is the one stop shop for all things food and drink after a day of exploring Southwark.

For those seeking more adult entertainment, the Ministry of Sound nightclub may just be the place for you. With top DJ’s such as Fritz Kalkbrenner performing on Saturday nights for affordable prices, Ministry of Sound is a great destination for all party animals.
