Just down the road from majestic St Paul's Cathedral is another of Sir Christopher Wren's creations, the little known church of St Bride's, also called "The Journalists' Church." Tucked away in a busy corner of Fleet Street, it is easy to miss, but...more

Walking back from a visit to St. Paul's, we noticed this church just a few steps off Fleet Street and stepped in. I had never heard of a church honoring members of the press, but that is the mission of this quaint place. The pews...More
Fleet Street was full of people rushing about in the heat, but 12 steps away was this lovely church. Peaceful and cool. But even more impressive was the crypt, only discovered after a wartime bomb hit the church. Down in the crypt were remains of...More
All right, I'll admit it. I attended Sunday worship here in October 2017, but I desired principally to hear the music.
I wasn't disappointed, as the professional choir was superlative. It was a beautiful Eucharist service.
Having given that well-deserved praise, I shall make a...More
I came across this by accident as I wandered London's backstreets. I was surprised to find it open - many no longer are except during services. I learned lots here: that it's also know as the Printers' Cathedral or the Journalists' Church; that people have...More
We stopped into this Sir Christopher Wren church for a lunchtime concert and were glad we did. The church is beautiful and full of history. The acoustics are fabulous so try to visit for a concert or a service. After the 45 minute concert of...More
A Wren church, reconstructed after 1940s bomb damage, which accounts for the fact that it's so clean (the stonework inside) and gives such a feeling of light. It helps that there aren't any towers overshadowing the south side.
Then downstairs there's a brief history of...More
You could quite easily miss the entrance if not careful and that would be a shame. Another church designed by Wren which is quite light inside owing to fact it as no stained glass windows. Lovely alter area and grand roof. Church as a crypt...More
A simple, light and airy church tucked away in Fleet Street.
Known as the journalists church. Every pew is commemorated to a journalist or institution.
Journalists who have been killed or taken hostage, and still missing are remembered and their images and bios displayed.
St Bride's is on Fleet Street and thanks to its exquisite four tiered wedding cake steeple, towers over the adjoining buildings. The interior is another fine baroque example of Wren's work and you can visit the crypt and see a bit of its history. I...More
The present church is the 8th on this site and is a delightful restoration of one of Wren's first London churches - beautifully proportioned and full of light, with the famous steeple that inspired the shape of modern tiered wedding cakes. Roman, Saxon, Norman and...More
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.
