The former chapel of Ely Palace. St Etheldrada's is wonderful hidden gem of a church. The memory of the English Catholic Martyrs of the Reformation is kept alive here. The stained glass is very impressive. The interior is much larger inside than one would expect from the outside but still not a large church.
Sunday Mass is at 9 am and 11 am. The latter Mass is sung in Latin.
Check out the Crypt as well.
It is easy to wander past the Church. From Holborn Circus head up Charterhouse and keep looking to your left (across from St Andrews) and you will come to Ely Place. Walk down and on your left is St Etheldreda's.
An added weekday bonus is the Old Mitre pub on Ely Court which is a passage that connects Ely Place with Hatton Garden. A wonderful little pub.
