Just a wander into the church was enough to make you seem at peace. Quite organ music playing in this Wren masterpiece.

This is a beautiful Church, next to the Guildhall. Lovely inside with a wonderful wooden organ. It is really peaceful so a great place to escape the noise of the city to relax and pray.
