A Wren church, reconstructed after 1940s bomb damage, which accounts for the fact that it's so clean (the stonework inside) and gives such a feeling of light. It helps that there aren't any towers overshadowing the south side. Then downstairs there's a brief history of...More

The present church is the 8th on this site and is a delightful restoration of one of Wren's first London churches - beautifully proportioned and full of light, with the famous steeple that inspired the shape of modern tiered wedding cakes. Roman, Saxon, Norman and...More
