Food Scene
Not everyone's favourite, but if you would like to try Pie and mash it is a traditional London working-class food, originating in London. Pie, mash and eel shops have been in London since the 19th century M.Manze was established in 1902 by Michele Manze - the present owners' Grandfather. They serve traditional Pie and Mash and Eels (jellied or stewed), in authentic surroundings. At Manzes, we still use the same recipes today for the pies and liquor as were used in 1902, the only changes made have been to improve quality and to meet the higher food standards of today.

Josè Pizarro worked in the award – winning Meson de Doña Filo in Madrid before coming to London José Tapas Bar was my first solo venture: a tapas and sherry bar on Bermondsey Street in London. It’s small and cosy, inspired by the bustling tapas bars around La Boquería market in Barcelona and the traditional tapas bars in the hot, dusty towns and villages of Andalucía. The daily menu depends on what looks good at the market on the day. You’ll see a mix of new dishes as well as old favourites. We maintain a diverse wine and sherry list from both established and small producers of Spain. You will find wines and sherries here that you won’t see anywhere else. Come on down and have a pincho!

Hay's Galleria is named after its original owner, the merchant Alexander Hay, who acquired the property – then a brewhouse – in 1651.[1] In around 1840 John Humphrey Jnr acquired a lease on the property.[1] He asked William Cubitt (who was father-in-law to two of Humphrey's sons) to convert it into a 'wharf', in fact an enclosed dock, in 1856 and it was renamed Hay's Wharf.[1] During the nineteenth century, the wharf was one of the chief delivery points for ships bringing tea to the Pool of London.[1] At its height, 80% of the dry produce imported to London passed through the wharf, and on this account the Wharf was nicknamed 'the Larder of London'.

City Hall is the Mayor of London's new headquarters and home to London's governing body, the London Assembly. Members of the public are allowed inside to visit the canteen. You can also book a walking talk of the building. The Mayor, not to be confused with the Lord Mayor of the City of London which is a ceremonial post, is publically elected every four years to manage the governance of Greater London. Opened in 2002, City Hall was designed by Sir Norman Foster who also designed the Gherkin Tower close by. Built on the site of the old Hay’s Wharf complex City Hall’s sweeping spherical shape makes it an environmentally friendly building.
City Hall
City Hall is the Mayor of London's new headquarters and home to London's governing body, the London Assembly. Members of the public are allowed inside to visit the canteen. You can also book a walking talk of the building. The Mayor, not to be confused with the Lord Mayor of the City of London which is a ceremonial post, is publically elected every four years to manage the governance of Greater London. Opened in 2002, City Hall was designed by Sir Norman Foster who also designed the Gherkin Tower close by. Built on the site of the old Hay’s Wharf complex City Hall’s sweeping spherical shape makes it an environmentally friendly building.

Next to Borough Market. We believe there has been a church on this site since AD 606. There may well have been a church here even earlier. Southwark Cathedral is the oldest cathedral church building in London, and archaeological evidence shows there was Roman pagan worship here well before that. Significantly, Southwark stands at the oldest crossing point of the tidal Thames at what was the only entrance to the City of London across the river for many centuries. It is not only a place of worship but also of hospitality to every kind of person: princes and paupers, prelates and prostitutes, poets, playwrights, prisoners and patients have all found refuge here

Trafalgar Square (/trəˈfælɡər/ trə-FAL-gər) is a public square in the City of Westminster, Central London, built around the area formerly known as Charing Cross. Its name commemorates the Battle of Trafalgar, a British naval victory in the Napoleonic Wars with France and Spain that took place on 21 October 1805 off the coast of Cape Trafalgar, Spain.

The prison was burned down in riots during 1780, and a small museum and tourist attraction now occupies part of the site.

Dean's Yard, Westminster, comprises most of the remaining precincts of the former monastery of Westminster, not occupied by the Abbey buildings. It is known to members of Westminster School as Green, and referred to without an article. It is a large gated quadrangle, closed to public traffic, surrounding a green upon which Westminster School pupils have legal rights to play football (they have some claim to have invented the modern game). Until the seventeenth century the Green was a third of its present size, since to the south stood the Queen's Scholars' dormitory, which was in monastic times the granary: its stones still support Church House.

Today Whitehall is chocked with traffic, but imagine the effect the broad street must have had to out-of-towners a century ago. In your horse-drawn carriage, you'd clop along the tree-lined boulevard past well dressed lords and ladies, dodging street urchins. Whitehall is now the most important street in Britain, lined with the ministries of finance, treasury and so on. The black ornamental arrowheads topping the iron fences were once colourfully painted. In 1861 Queen Victoria ordered them all painted black when he beloved Prince Albert (The only one who called her Vickie) died.

The Clink Prison Museum is built upon the original site of The Clink Prison, which dating back to 1144 was one of England’s oldest and most notorious prisons. Spanning for over 600 years, it witnessed a remarkable amount of social and political change in England, and thus housed a multitude of sinners throughout its existence, including debtors, heretics, drunkards, harlots, and later religious adversaries. Positioned in the heart of modern day Southwark, the prison was situated in an area that has long been associated with more raucous, vivacious and unruly behaviour; it was the louder, ruder and wickeder neighbour to The City, and a place where Londoners sought entertainment.

Shakespeare's Globe is the complex housing a reconstruction of the Globe Theatre, an Elizabethan playhouse associated with William Shakespeare, in the London Borough of Southwark, on the south bank of the River Thames. The original theatre was built in 1599, destroyed by fire in 1613, rebuilt in 1614, and then demolished in 1644. The modern Globe Theatre reconstruction is an academic approximation based on available evidence of the 1599 and 1614 buildings. It is considered quite realistic, though contemporary safety requirements mean that it accommodates only 1400 spectators compared to the original theatre’s 3000.
