Often when you go exploring older places you don't expect much by way of accessibility. Southwark shows what can be done both on an environmental level and in the warm welcome offered.
Transport & Parking
Being in the heart of the community the Cathedral is easily accessible by public transport. I arrived having come of the Jubilee Line tube at London Bridge. Not too far to wheel along to the Cathdral.
One you find the entrance it's easy to wheel in with wide doors and a very clever covered walkway that links to the Cathedral, shop, toilets, and Refectory (cafe). There's a platform lift down to the Cathedral and you can browse most areas once your inside. If you get time, stop for a service as the atmosphere and music was beautiful. The Refectory was easy to get into, lots of space by the counter, and easy to find a spot to sit and rest a while.
There are two accessible toilets. I used the one off the covered walkway which was spacious, clean and easy to access. Particular thanks to the steward who pointed the way and helped with the door.
Staff throughout the Cathedral and Refectory were very friendly and happy to help. We were received with a warm and cheerful welcome.

Ran out of time to browse so this will definitely be on my list of places to visit again.
