Visscher's panorama was the most detailed view of London before the great fire of 1666. It depicts London as Shakespeare knew it, the Globe theatre in Southwark is shown where his plays were performed by the Kings players. Prominent on the south bank of the Thames are the Bear Garden and swan theatres, rivals of the Globe, along with the church of St Saviours, said to be founded by St Swithin, that later became Southwark Cathedral.

Connecting Southwark to the City of London is Old London Bridge. Building began in 1176, supervised by Peter Colechurch, and was completed in 1209. At the time of Visscher's view there were around 200 buildings on the bridge, some up to 6 stories high.

St Paul's is prominent and shown without it's spire, one of the tallest in Europe, that burnt down in 1561. Wren estimated it to be around 140 metres tall.
