Wow, a large church, and welcoming, no problems getting into the church. Plus there were signs for the toilet as soon as one entered, so no problems about using the facilities if you so require. Light, impressive stained glass windows. I will go back. I...More

It is misleading and wrong that this church advertises itself as "the musicians' church" as it has one of the worst acoustics for orchestral music I have ever encountered. We foolishly hired it for a concert without visiting first and almost all rehearsal time had...More

I didn't actually visit the church on the day. Instead, my mission was to see London's first drinking fountain, which is set into the railings of St Sepulchre Church. It was inaugurated in April 1859. Its red granite is a memorial to Samuel Gurney, who...More
