Conservation areas

Borough High Street

The Borough High Street Conservation Area is based on Borough High Street between St George the Martyr and London Bridge. To the west the conservation area includes Southwark Street to the junction with Park Street and a small network of streets between London Bridge, the riverfront and the Cannon Street railway bridge, within which Southwark Cathedral and the Borough Market are situated. East of Borough High Street the conservation area includes the surroundings of Guy’s Hospital in St. Thomas Street. The townscape of the conservation area reflects its evolution over a long period. With the exception of Southwark Cathedral, the George Inn and modern intrusions the building stock is of the 18th, 19th and early 20th century, designed on Classical principles.
