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
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
On Fleet Street it was hot chaos, people rushing everywhere, even having lunch in the small grounds of this church but apart from us there was only 2 people inside. It’s a lovely church. I was surprised to see so many icons in it, very...More
Another of London's treasures. It's stood on Fleet St for over 180 years. It's famous for its clock and was the first public one London to have a minute hand. There are a number of courtyard statues. It's steeped in history and I didn't have...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
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

Through family history research found that my Gt,Gt,Granddad was married in this church back in 1841 so was really interest to see and was not disappointed a lovely place of peace in the middle of the city
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
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
glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
