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

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

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

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 City” is one of London's most historic and
