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
I visited this Cafe today with fairly high expectations upon seeing the menu’s pricing. I opted for the honey roasted smoked ham with egg & chips. At £11.90, I thought it must be very good. What turned up were two small fried eggs, a three...More
Great to see this church by the Tower of London - the oldest church in the City. We spent around 15 minutes looking round and reading the literature. No fee to pay but we donated as they depend very much on this. Beautiful and a...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 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
glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
