    We spent a few hours there although one can see it under 1 hour. A very interesting place to visit and I would recommend reading and researching beforehand. One needs to buy tickets online ahead of time; they are sold out quickly.

    This is one of the iconic place in London to visit. There is so much history and the architecture is nothing short of fantastic - especially when one considers how long ago it was built. Depending on time of day you go there could well be queues. And the tour is not cheap - but it is absolutely worth the cost and you would regret not visiting. A ‘must do’ for visitors to London.

    This was our 1st attraction in london, after our flight and morning arrival. No far from victoria station, our home base. Short walk and a beautiful church that has an interior look that appears much older than it is. They have a tower you can go up to for city views, the day we went was rainy with poor visibility. Worth a visit, no cost.

    Very peaceful and historic. Worth a visit to read about its history, then take a nice walk through Middle Temple Gardens.

    This splendid church has magnificent Georgian architecture and it stands in one corner of Trafalgar Square.

    The current building was completed in 1726 and in 1924 it actually hosted the first church service to be broadcast on the radio.

    The Church features many concerts, including free lunchtime and afternoon performances. There are also atmospheric candlelit evening events and regular exhibitions to discover. There are 2 cafes, Courtyard Café and Café in the Crypt which is worth a visit for the ambience of its surroundings.

    The church has a magnificent Organ and a particularly beautiful ceiling.

    This is a famous church it is featured in several books and has hosted many famous weddings. In addition the church may be the St Martin's referred to in the nursery rhyme known as Oranges and Lemons.

    The church survived the Great Fire of London in 1666, but was badly damaged during the Blitz in World War II. However, there is still so much to see inside. I have never seen so many ship-related artefacts in any church. The crypt is worth visiting too.

    Great preaching and music at the 11 am sung Eucharist in a 900 year old church; a superb Anglican service of worship. And coffee, too.

    I stopped by here on my way to Borough Market one day. As a Methodist, I wanted to get a better insight to John Wesley and Methodism as a whole.
    The church and museum are incredibly easy to find a short walk from several tube stations.
    Once onsite the house is the the right and the church is directly in front with a museum in front of you. I found the church to be absolutely gorgeous on the inside and popped down into the museum/shop for some small items.
    I do wish I saw more staff around. The only people I encountered were to pay in the shop. I had wanted to see inside Wesley House and get a little more information, but it didn't seem to be in the cards for me on this particular day.
    Definitely worth the stop in for any Methodist or theologian.

    Located between Bank and Cannon Street stations it is easy to miss St Stephen's church. It is close to the Starbucks and if it was not for the fact it is an old building you would miss it.

    If you like old churches then you should probably hunt down this hidden gem.

    Winston Churchill Statue is a big statue made of bronze in Parliament Square. It is a must to see whether you like history or not!

    This is an original Wren church in the heart of London; the current building replaced the medieval church building and was completed in 1682 by celebrated architect Sir Christopher Wren. Wren's building was gutted by Luftwaffe bombing raids during the Blitz and not restored until 1958, when it was adapted to its current function as the central church of the Royal Air Force.

    The floor of the church, of Welsh slate, is inscribed with the badges of over 800 RAF commands, groups, stations, squadrons and other formations. Near the entrance door is a ring of the badges of Commonwealth air forces, surrounding the badge of the RAF.

    A memorial to the Polish airmen and squadrons who fought in the defence of the United Kingdom and the liberation of Europe in the Second World War is positioned on the floor of the north aisle.

    Books of Remembrance listing the names of all the RAF personnel who have died in service, as well as those American airmen based in the United Kingdom who died during the Second World.

    The church has an impressive Knave and ceiling and the amazing organ situated facing the altar in the gallery, a gift from the United States Air Force.

    Of course it is free to enter or you can just admire the splendid architecture from the street. You literally would never know how badly the church was damaged during the blitz when you gaze upon it now.

    A wonderful and tranquil church with amazing choir recitals performed. All faiths welcome. You could walk past and not notice it. A special place.

    You can find this lovely artistic church in Bride Lane just off Fleet Street. Saint Brides Church is named after an Irish Saint called Bride. She was the patron Saint of Ireland. It is also called the Journalist’s Church because it was located in the heart of the British Newspaper Industry. There has been a church at this point for centuries. The current building is it 8th reincarnation. The medieval church here was destroyed by the 1666 Fire of London. Christopher Wren designed a beautiful new church here. It’s layered spire inspired a baker to bake a multi tiered wedding cake for his bride thus starting a new tradition. The 1940 Blitz caused the next destruction. This revealed the ancient crypts and bones of thousands of people buried beneath this church. They were all preserved when Wren’s church was restored. Do visit this quaint church to see layers upon layers of history. Do not miss the Roman ruins in the basement.
