St George’s Roman Catholic Cathedral is situated close to Waterloo Station and The Imperial War Museum. St George’s serves as the Mother Church of the Archdiocese of Southwark.

An easy error for visitors to Britain to make is to confuse the Greek Orthodox St George’s Cathedral near St Pancras on the north side of the Thames with this Roman Catholic Cathedral.

This impressive Cathedral dates from 1848 and was the first Roman Catholic Church in London to be raised to Cathedral status since the Reformation. It was dedicated in 1894.

During the Second World War, the Cathedral suffered catastrophic air-raid damage; however, by 1958 it had been rebuilt. During the re-building a clerestory was introduced and white Cotswold stone used for the interior.

St George's is now brilliantly lit by natural lighting. Along the walls of the north aisle are the usual 14 Stations of the Cross, telling the story of Christ's sufferings, from his condemnation by Pilate to his burial in the tomb.

Visitors are welcome to attend Confession and Masses. For more information visit the Cathedral website.
