ⓘ Suffolk Place

Suffolk Place was a mansion house located on the west side of Borough High Street in Southwark, Surrey, on the south bank of the River Thames opposite the City of London. It was the London town house of the Dukes of Suffolk, and was located near Winchester Palace, London seat of the Bishop of Winchester. The position was highly prominent as Borough High Street was the principal thoroughfare leading from London Bridge and the City of London, to Canterbury and Dover, a route used by monarchs and others, including the pilgrims in Chaucers Pilgrims Progress. It was built in the fifteenth century and rebuilt in fine Renaissance style in 1522 by Charles Brandon, 1st Duke of Suffolk a favourite of King Henry VIII. On 4 February 1536 it was taken over by King Henry VIII who exchanged it with Brandon for Norwich Place on the Strand, on the north side of the Thames, nearer to the Palace of Westminster.

King Henry the VIII gave his wife Jane Seymour in June 1537, but when she died in October of the same year, he returned to the king. In 1545 the house was converted into candy. He was busy Queen Mary I 1553-1558 and her new husband Philip II of Spain the night before the government came into London in 1554. Perhaps it was the time when he was depicted by Anthony van den Wyngaerdes Panorama of London, to the left of the high Street in the borough in the foreground of the picture. It was demolished in 1557 and the area was built up with small houses, which became known as the mint, a notorious rookery. Modern office block called Brandon house at 180 borough high street and opposite the metro now takes place Suffolk place. It is also immortalized on a nearby street Suffolk.
