you have to look to find this church just a few steps from its big famous "sister" St. Pauls. The architect is the same though, Sir Wren. We happened to arrive in the middle of the noon service and the warden right away came with...More

The current church was rebuilt in 1677-86 by Sir Christopher Wren. It has some interesting features such as the original pulpit from 1680, elaborately carved dark wooden door cases and beautiful paintings. Some items originally were in other churches such as the 17th century bread...More

This Church does not look spectacular from the outside but it is impressive inside. It feels so calm so a wonderful place to pray and think.
