A nice quiet place inside and outside with a very pleasant park around the church where you can sit and relax, read, enjoy the nice weather or do whatever you please. Right next to the Covent Market.

Came to a fun singing event here (a Come and sing), it is a lovely church on Covent Garden which is closely linked to the theatre community. It's a haven of tranquility in the gardens recommended for a quiet moment!

Build 1631-1633, located at Bedford Street just behind Covent Garden (City of Westminster) - and have a connection to theatre and actors since 1663. On the walls inside you can see a lot of famous actors names.

This is a big church and gardens right next to Covent Garden on the East side. Easy to miss due to the plain exterior. Entry is via the door in the gardens. Inside, this is a big roomy church with interesting memorials on the walls....More

This is a totally overlooked church, located just outside Covent garden. It's very easy to miss it, as its façade is anything but impressive. Still, it's worth a 5-minute visit.

Old church across from Covent Market. The day I went there was a charity event selling Christmas cards which were being sold inside. Had it not been for the event I may have never seen the relaxing area in back of the church or the...More

Located at one end of the Covent Garden piazza, this church is an absolute 'must see' for theatre and film lovers. The memorials on the walls read like a history of the acting, writing and directing profession, including Peter O'Toole, Dame Sybil Thorndike, Noel Coward,...More

Set in the heart of Covent Garden, the door you see from the market square is actually just painted onto the wall - the entrance is in a tranquil and unexpected courtyard just around the corner. We went to the church to see a production...More

This is the actors church. Inside is interesting, but the great fun is walking around it and looking at all the different actors who have now passed on. How many do you remember?

Sorry, I can't help. We took the subway but as Covent Garden station was closed we walked from Leicester Square.
