Almost hidden just South West of Kensington Palace is this beautiful 12/13th century building. The place's history lies heavy ob you as soon as you step through the gate - you seem transported to ancient times. Inside, it is just as beautiful and serene.

Whether you want to worship or enjoy the great architecture, Saint Mary abbots is a great place. It has a great sign just outside which reflects the church and clergy motto: where children are baptised, lovers wed, and loved ones laid to rest.

St Mary Abbots Church is an extraordinary sacred space in the heart of Kensington. The cathedral is absolutely stunning, and the history contained within its walls is truly amazing. If you have the opportunity, do attend one of the services; they are wonderful.
