Southwark is a prominent area of London and a prime location for tourists to visit. With attractions such as London Bridge, the Shard (pictured above), Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre and the Millennium Bridge all in close proximity to each other and among a wealth of shops, businesses, services like PC maintenance and galleries, it’s no wonder Southwark is always full of an eclectic mix of people. As is important to a capital city, Southwark, historically, has been the centre of trade and traffic over the last few centuries, giving rise to the success of Britain. Located on the Thames between Waterloo and London Bridge it has excellent transport links from is modern architect-designed Tube station, with the Jubilee line, and nearby national rail services.
London has always been very culturally diverse and by the 15th century Southwark had the highest population of immigrants in the capital. 200 years later it was the second most populous urban area of England, City of London taking the top spot. As the Industrial Revolution drew closer, the increase of Irish immigrants in particular was welcomed as many workers were needed to build London’s first railway. As well as the rail network, Borough market, by London Bridge, was opened in 1851 and has continued to succeed. Although it may not offer computer repair in Southwark, being one of the oldest and largest markets in London, Borough market does have an array of foods from all around the world, carrying on the trade of international produce from centuries past.
Many authors and artists alike have added to the cultural wealth of Southwark, with the borough making an appearance as the settings to many of Charles Dickens’ books. Another, and possibly more renowned author and playwright, that is associated with the area is William Shakespeare. His greatest plays were performed in the Globe Theatre including Hamlet, the Twelfth Night, Macbeth and the Tempest. Back then Shakespeare would have hand-written these out in early modern English but if he had been around today, it’s not unlikely he would have typed them up, taken advantage of technology and PC repair in Southwark, maybe even published some of his work on social media sites!
1811 saw the opening of Britain’s first public art gallery, the Dulwich Picture Gallery, adding to the visual arts scene in Southwark. Notable artists include John Ruskin, William Blake and, perhaps one of the most celebrated British landscape artists, Joseph Mallord William Turner. Primarily working in oils, he created works of art still recognized today, some even featuring imagery of Southwark. Although controversial in his time, he then became the Romantic precursor to Impressionism, a movement that produced artists such as Monet. Art has moved on so far from then but Southwark is still very central to the art world, this includes digital art and the use of programs like Photoshop. With the introduction to digital art, the development of creative programs, computer maintenance, new technology and PC repair in Southwark have all become essential to many contemporary artists.
