St Saviour was one of the ancient parishes of the Borough of Southwark in the county of Surrey. Its parish church is today better known as Southwark Cathedral, having been elevated to cathedral status in 1905 on the creation of the Diocese of Southwark. The parish lies on the south bank of the River Thames, immediately opposite the City of London and adjoins London Bridge.

In 1900 the parish of St Saviour was incorporated into the Metropolitan Borough of Southwark in the county of London. Since 1965 the area has come under the jurisdiction of the London Borough of Southwark.
