Dark on a dark day. Circular, the pews dominates the centre. The seat padding to some of the pews look very frayed. Incense is in the air, this is because “St Dunstan-in-the-West is one of three churches in England to share its building with the...More

One of the city's Romanian Orthodox churches, a service was underway on our arrival. Respecting the worship of the congregation we waited until its end and then viewed this impressive place. The facade is attractive, with its notable clock. Inside, the central aisle is grand...More
