Southwark – City – East End – Walworth

The sun shone on one of the many inter faith walks co-ordinated by the South London Inter Faith Group this weekend.  This one started at Southwark Cathedral and took in Bevis Marks Synagogue, East London Mosque and Kagyu Samye Dzong.  Here are some photos.

Rose petals were strewn on to the River Thames from London Bridge.

Entering Bevis Marks Synagogue, which has the longest unbroken history of worship of any synagogue in Europe.  One of the congregation welcomed us in and told us the history of Judaism in the UK, the Sephardic tradition and about the congregation today.

Entering the London Muslim Centre, which stands alongside East London Mosque.

Inside East London Mosque, where we were given a warm welcome.
