Only found out about the church recently. It’s right by the Tower of London. There is a guidebook available and they do tours. While the church was bombed during the war there is still a lot of history to see including an original Saxon arch...More

We stumbled upon this gem after leaving the Tower of London. Easy, free access with donations accepted. Dates back to 657!! Quite a small church with great architecture and history. Crypt museum of sorts below, doesn't take much time but well worth the visit.

From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to
its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile

“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
