We stopped into this Sir Christopher Wren church for a lunchtime concert and were glad we did. The church is beautiful and full of history. The acoustics are fabulous so try to visit for a concert or a service. After the 45 minute concert of...More

The present church is the 8th on this site and is a delightful restoration of one of Wren's first London churches - beautifully proportioned and full of light, with the famous steeple that inspired the shape of modern tiered wedding cakes. Roman, Saxon, Norman and...More

One of the most impressive City of London churches I have seen. Very smart, the floor tiles polished to an inch of its life. Impressive statues to St Bride and St Paul. Most pews have an inscription, some are very gaudy, charity comes with a...More
