Neighbourhood: Bloomsbury
Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance access to many of London's most popular attractions. It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated museums, including the must-see British Museum. Despite an understandable popularity with students, tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury retain a quiet, residential feel year round and throughout the week.

We had tried to get inside this amazing building previously but it was finally open this time. And we were so glad that it was. The sixth of the Hawksmoor parish churches, it was opened in 1830. The steeple it something else - apparently based on the original Mausoleum at Halicarnassus, it it topped by a statue of George I.

The building was restored in 2006 and it now clean and white inside and out. The stained glass is colourful. There are models of the steeple on the window ledges at the far side of the building from the front door. It is difficult to photograph the top of the tower from the street but you can get great views from the Post Building roof top garden a street away.

We visited this beautiful church in July of 2018 after going to the British Museum. I planning our trip I noticed this was near where we had planed to spend the day and recently realizing this this last verifiable point where my family had been before they emigrated the the USA in 1793. My 3rd Great Grand Father was baptized here. Upon entry we were greeted by a lady who received our enthusiasm gracefully as we stood in amazement at seeing the beautiful interior. Thank you for the improvements and restoration it meant so much to me to stand in this place!

Not a must but if your in the area. I went for Christmas carols. Big and well kept but lacked character. Quite dull. Near to Holborn underground.

I was welcomed so wholeheartedly by the priest and a very well spoken kind woman .
The atmosphere in the church was exceptionaly peaceful. The smell and ambience was magnificent. I arrived after the morning service on Sunday. They let me in to pray and light a candle.
I am glad to have come across the church in my godly walk of ☮️ peace.
Thankyou St George church .

We were lucky to find this 1730 Hawksmoor church open. I believe it is one of only six Hawksmoor churches surviving in London.
It is tucked away and hardly visible unless you are in front of it, but the unique tower looms above the neighbouring buildings. The tower is modelled on a description of the Mausoleum of Hallicarnassus and is topped, oddly, with a statue of King George 1st in Roman Dress.
The massive exterior columns need a good cleaning but are impressive.
The interior is surprisingly small and more square than you would anticipate. Quite plain but light and welcoming.
Worth a visit.

Came here multiple times to find the church firmly locked even though the lights were on inside. Nice on outside.

We were on an organised walk visiting Hawksmoore churches. We had pre-arranged access to the interior. The restoration of the inside makes a usable space for worship and preserve the design of the 18th century genius. The tower is like nothing else.

This older church is fairly small but boasts some very good acustics. This church has some great choir concerts well worth the visit.

Came here for second year in a row to see Nigel Shaw & Carolyn Hillyer perform their magical earthy music.
The space inside lends itself perfectly to the sounds of Carolyn’s singing and drumming, whilst Nigel’s flutes soared like larks above.
Beautiful!! Xx

This is the Anglican Parish church for London's wealthy Mayfair district. The composer Handel worshipped here and it now hosts an annual Handel music festival. The exterior is quite monumental belying a lovely and relatively simple interior, dominated by a stunning organ above the entrance. Well worth a visit.
