Another of London's treasures. It's stood on Fleet St for over 180 years. It's famous for its clock and was the first public one London to have a minute hand. There are a number of courtyard statues. It's steeped in history and I didn't have...More

If the £18 entrance fee for St. Paul's is a bit too expensive and far too crowded with tourists then take a 10 minute walk down Ludgate Hill and on into Fleet Street (famous for newspaper printing) to find St. Dunstan In The West. OK....More

One of the city's Romanian Orthodox churches, a service was underway on our arrival. Respecting the worship of the congregation we waited until its end and then viewed this impressive place. The facade is attractive, with its notable clock. Inside, the central aisle is grand...More

The first things you notice about St Dunstan is the chiming clock, with figures of giants representing Gog and Magog who strike the bells with their clubs (every 15 minutes). The church survived WW2 largely intact and was fully repaired by 1950. This is pne...More
