St George's CathedralOne of two cathedrals in Southwark, St George's Cathedral opened in 1848 as
the first Catholic cathedral in the UK after the Reformation. The impressive building occupies an
historic site very close to the Imperial War Museum. Designed by†great Victorian architect Pugin, whose plans were
stunted due to lack of funds, the great soaring building is still an
architectural gem that bears witness to the Gothic revival that was prevalent in
buildings†at this time.†Inside the ceilings sweep up in gentle curves to the
towering peak while the intricate carvings and elaborate
decorations are just stunning. Much of the cathedral was badly bombed in 1941
during the Second World War; it was entirely rebuilt, however, sticking
faithfully to Pugin's original design. For such a grand building, the cathedral
is keen to uphold†its community focus, welcoming all new faces to the many
services held here. The†local Latin American community, for example,†is served
with a Mass delivered in Spanish every Sunday at 1pm. Renowned for its fine choral tradition the resident choir are often used for television and radio broadcasts.
