St George's Cathedral is a Roman Catholic cathedral in the Archdiocese of Southwark, south London. The cathedral stands opposite the Imperial War Museum, London (IWM) and is the mother church for both the Archdiocese of Southwark (all of London south of the River Thames including Kent and north Surrey) and the Dioceses of Arundel and , Portsmouth, and Plymouth.
First built in 1848, St George's Cathedral was the first Roman Catholic cathedral to be built in London since the reformation. It was designed by Augustus Pugin, who was also the first person to be married within it. The cathedral was badly bombed during World War II, rebuilt and opening again in 1958.
St George's has a strong choral tradition with the Cathedral Choir of boys and men attending 11.30am Solemn Mass every Sunday. This choir has also performed for Radio 4 and BBC1 television. The cathedral building is used for the graduation ceremony of London South Bank University.
