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

Many people pass by this church so close to the Royal Courts of Justice without a glance but the site has a tremendous history. The original church was established in the late 10th century and underwent many changes before being demolished in the 1830s to...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

City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to
its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile
in the world, the financial district known simply as
“The City” is one of London's most historic and
fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office
towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with
Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually
every era in between, including Christopher Wren's
