Walking along Fleet St we spotted what appeared to be a classic neo-Gothic church and decided to go in. We were surprised to find that the church is actually octagonal with many unusual design features not least of which is a section of Romanian Orthodox....More

A lovely church just up from St Mary's Temple Church and a short walk from St Paul's Cathedral. Lovely ornate facade facing onto Fleet Street. Inside we were amazed at how intricate the iconography was and we just did not expect it to be some...More

When the Temple church was bombed this became the stand-in until after the war. I think it is octagonal and has a very Orthodox church style chapel. I was intrigued by a memorial near the door at the back on the right, above the hymn...More

On the way to St Paul's we decided to stop and have a look at this beautiful church. The colour of the walls are a lovely shade of blue-green which is so calming. It was deserted and we walked around peacefully. It is so old...More
