Lying outside the range and censorship of the City of London, 16th century Southwark was able to develop the famous wooden o’s of the Swan, Rose and Globe Theatres. A unique survivor is The George, London’s only remaining galleried coaching inn. It reminds us of Chaucer’s pilgrims setting off on their famous journey while the spirit of Dickens is evoked in an atmosphere of log fires, narrow staircases and the creaking floors of the guest rooms.
The recent revival of the area has not dampened its rich history. New buildings stand beside Victorian tenements, with the most modest still linked to tradition and the natural virtues of timber. Wooden floors remain popular in commercial and domestic buildings. Their durability, beauty and ease of maintenance remains unequalled by more modern materials.
Yet whether your floor lies in a home, office, bar, gallery, gym, restaurant or school – the passage of feet and time will create shabbiness or more serious damage. The solution comes from a professional floor sanding company.

Did you know about Southwark?
The London Borough of Southwark is a London borough in south east London, England. It is directly south of the River Thames and the City of London, and forms part of Inner London. Southwark got its name in the 9th century but was first settled in the Roman period. The London Borough of Southwark was formed in 1965 from the former area of the Metropolitan Borough of Southwark, the Metropolitan Borough of Camberwell, and the Metropolitan Borough of Bermondsey.
Southwark has many literary associations. Charles Dickens set several of his novels in the old borough where he lived as a young man. The site of The Tabard inn (featured in Chaucer's Canterbury Tales), the White Hart inn and the George Inn which survives. The rebuilt Globe Theatre and its exhibition on the Bankside remind us of the area's being the birthplace of classical theatre. There is also the remains of the Rose Theatre. In 2007 the Unicorn Theatre for Children was opened on Tooley Street with both the Southwark Playhouse and the Union Theatre having premises in Bermondsey Street. The Menier Chocolate Factory combines a theatre and exhibition space.
The borough is the location of international-standard museums and galleries; the Imperial War Museum and its outpost HMS Belfast moored at the Pool, Dulwich Picture Gallery the oldest public gallery in Britain, and one of the most modern, the Tate Modern. The Bankside Gallery is the headquarters of the Royal Watercolour Society and the Royal Society of Painter Printmakers. Specialist and local collections are represented at the London Fire Brigade Museum, the Old Operating Theatre Museum and Herb Garret, The Clink, the Cuming Museum and the London Bridge Experience and London Tombs under London Bridge.
