This is a 1574 map of London. It shows us what London looked like in Tudor times. In the middle of the map is the City of London inside the City walls. On the left side is Westminster where two of the royal palaces were. The River Thames flows through the centre. There is only one bridge across the Thames: London Bridge. At the bottom of the map is Southwark on the south bank of the river. Here you can see two round buildings: these were the bull- and bear-baiting pits.
