THE OUTLAW BOROUGH WALK
Thursday 15 June
Meet Shakespeare's Globe 7pm; free
Led by John Constable. Come and find out about Southwark's
medieval outlaws. London has always been two cities, north
and south of the river. And nowhere has the divide been
sharper than around London Bridge, where for centuries the
city faced the Liberty of the Clink, a haven for outlaws.
The medieval Bankside was a waterfront strip of theatres,
taverns, bear-pits, and licensed brothels or 'stews'. Such
things were forbidden within the city walls, but there was
always a thriving ferry trade to row the gentlemen over in
search of forbidden pleasures.
