This is a rather high Anglican Church, even higher than most Roman Catholic churches. Their liturgy is fascinating and splendid, which is according to English Missal, basically a Tridentine Mass in English.

This church is very interesting. Its portico was the road leading to the old London Bridge and indeed there is an excellent model of that bridge inside the church itself. There are beautiful carvings and paintings as well as a very interesting guide sheet.

For Anglo-Catholics who like liturgy done well in an ideal setting. Lovely Baroque furnishings in a real Restoration church. Liturgy solemn and un-fussy. Lovely Marian shrine. Friendly church - seems to appeal to gay men.

It is just at the base of London Bridge, and the porch of this early church was actually part of the London Bridge. They had a model of the Medieval London Bridge, which had a lot of detail. That alone is worth finding this church....More

We stumbled on this beautiful little Historic church nestled among the modern buildings. It's a peaceful place. It has wonderful stained glass and an interesting model of The old London Bridge.

City of London
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

Yes - it's open all year. I would check their website (I can't post the link, but google it) if you want to avoid clashing with services. There are also contact details on the website.

If you go to the churches website it may tell you it's opening hours. Google St Magnus the Martyr.
