Southwark, inner borough of London, England. Situated opposite the central City of London, Southwark borough extends south from the River Thames over such areas and historic villages as Rotherhithe, Southwark (including Bankside, a historic district and street along the Thames), Bermondsey, Walworth, Camberwell, Peckham (in part), Nunhead, East Dulwich, Herne Hill (in part), Dulwich, and Sydenham Hill. The present borough was formed in 1965 by amalgamating three former metropolitan boroughs, Bermondsey, Camberwell, and Southwark. Nearly all of Southwark belongs to the historic county of Surrey, apart from a small section in the east that belongs to Kent.
In the borough’s northern section, Southwark village has been important as a junction of roads and as a commanding point on the approach to London ever since 43 CE, when the Romans constructed a bridge there across the Thames. Old Southwark, known traditionally as The Borough, was a market town from early Saxon times. It became a haven for criminals and prostitutes in the Middle Ages. In the mid-16th century, it became known as the Bridge Ward Without or the ward of Bridge-without.
From the 15th century on, Southwark was known for its inns, theatres, spas, country resorts, and other places of entertainment and recreation, but it also grew in notoriety for its poorer, run-down districts. As imagined by the poet Geoffrey Chaucer, the pilgrims to Canterbury started their journey from the Tabard Inn in what is now Borough High Street. Among the borough’s many noteworthy early theatres was Bankside’s Globe Theatre. Many of William Shakespeare’s plays were first produced; a historical reconstruction of that theatre was opened near the original site in 1997. The George (built-in 1676), now owned by the National Trust, is the last surviving galleried inn in London.
After the Reformation (in the 16th century), the Augustinian priory of St. Mary Overie became the parish church of Southwark. Since 1905 it has been the cathedral church of the see of Southwark. Guy’s Hospital, one of London’s major teaching hospitals, was opened nearby in 1726. The Anglican St. Mary Magdalen Church in Bermondsey dates to the late 16th century.
Two former Southwark landmarks gave rise to popular phrases: the state of chaos (i.e., animated confusion), derived from the popular name for the Hospital of St. Mary of Bethlehem (founded as a monastery in 1247) for the mentally ill; and be in the clink (i.e., imprisoned), derived from the prison on Clink Street. Southwark is also the site of Marshalsea prison, in which Charles Dickens’s parents and siblings (all except Fanny and Charles himself) were incarcerated. Dickens’s character Little Dorrit (from the novel of the same name) was born in Marshalsea prison and was married in St. George the Martyr Church (1734) nearby.
The borough is rife with other Dickens associations. The now much-altered Eckett Street in Jacobs Island was the site of the foul, disgusting neighbourhood so graphically described as the home of the brutal Bill Sikes in Oliver Twist. Among the former inhabitants of Southwark is the mathematician Charles Babbage; writers Mary Wollstonecraft, Oliver Goldsmith, and Enid Blyton; American colonist John Harvard (for whom Harvard University is named); and actor Sir Michael Caine.
