When you and your travel group visit the exciting city of London, England, you are inevitably faced with choosing from among several options to move you and your party through and around the city. Indeed, the diverse and dynamic metropolis of London offers much to see and do, and transportation options abound. You and your party may choose to simply walk to a destination. You may hail a public cab. Or, you may choose public mass transportation, either in the form of London’s iconic double decker city buses or travel underground on the tube. One transportation option that many may not consider, however, is that of a private transportation hire from a car or minibus service.
You and your travel group will certainly need transportation across London as you explore the city’s many boroughs and landmarks. One area nearly every visitor to London is sure to take in is the Borough of Southwark. Southwark is home to several of what could certainly be considered international landmarks. Some of the sights and locations of Southwark include:
The site of the Tabard Inn, central to Geoffrey Chaucer’s “The Canterbury Tales”
The borough in which Charles Dickens set many novels and where he lived as a young man
The reconstruction of William Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre
The remains of the Rose Theatre
The Menier Chocolate Factory, an off West End theatre
The Imperial War Museum
Dulwich Picture Gallery, the oldest public gallery in Britain
Branches of the University of the Arts London
Indeed, the borough of Southwark is central to the lives and works of some of Western culture’s most famous minds and is certainly worth a visit on any trip to London. Take in a Shakespeare play at the rebuilt Globe Theatre, next to the site where so many of his works charmed and challenged their original Elizabethan audiences. Tell a story to your friends so they may buy you a meal near the Tabard Inn. Retrace the steps of a young Charles Dickens, or those of his most famous characters. Enjoy a cutting edge, contemporary theatrical performance at the Menier Chocolate Factory.
When you visit Southwark, you may wish to hire a private car service.
