Touring the City of London and all it has to offer was a highlight of our recent trip. We have been to London a number of times over the years but had not spent as much time in the City. The church is located in the middle of the street, where the Strand begins to turn into Fleet Street. Having survived the Great Fire, the church was literally destroyed in 1941 by a bomb and waited over a decade before being rebuilt. The end result is a quiet and meaningful tribute to the fallen flyers not only of the RAF but also other nations and more recent conflicts. Standing inside the church it is difficult to remember that you are in the middle of a busy street in London. Relax and enjoy the light filtering in and the memorials located throughout. A reminder of the past, a tribute to the losses of war, and a lesson that beautiful architecture can indeed endure and be rebuilt.
