Had always wanted to visit this very special church because of the connection with the print media from when they were based in Fleet Street. Delighted to find it was open to visitors. We chatted with a lovely gentleman who told us so much of the history of this beautiful church and the crypt beneath it. We had been told... More

Absolutely fascinating church. So much history from Roman times to the present. Still very much the media's church but so much more than that. A trip downstairs to the crypt reveals so much more. So pleased we visited St Brides rather than St Paul's.

I wouldn't particularly suggest anyone goes out of their way to see St Bride's, but if you're passing that way don't fail to pop in for a look.

St. Bride's Church is Grade I listed building just off Fleet Street. It is one of Sir Christopher Wren's churches (1672) that has a particularly interesting history, it is also one of the more attractive small church visits that you can make in London. The St. Bride's Church occupies the sight of more ancient church grounds, which date back to... More

'The cathedral of Fleet Street' is a place for worship and a special place to refresh the soul. It is a church that has a special place in my heart as I have attended it all my life. To worship at St. Brides is a privilege and to enjoy the music from the choir is something that everyone should make... More

St. Bride's Church is a lovely cathedral that I wanted to visit. There were pretty gardens with flowers in bloom - in April. It had meaning for me because my ancestors from the 1700's were married at St. Bride's Church. Obviously it's very old and it's pointed out when you ride the Hop-on Hop-off bus lines as an historical building.

Both from the outside and the inside, this church is worth seeing if you like vast and bright buildings. It seemed to glow, although whether that was due to natural or artificial lighting I couldn't say. The entrance is a bit hard to find but if you approach from Fleet Street and Bride Lane, be prepared for a beautiful hushed... More

This church is fantastic inside and exudes history. Spend time in the crypt and you will see walls that go way back to Roman times. Christopher Wren churches are beautiful inside and the walls are filled with interesting markers for graves of the rich and remembered souls. Beautiful alter with wood carving around the top with gold inlay on the... More

It was my last day in London. Staying at Club QUARTERS next to St Pauls on Ludgate hill road I woke and was out the door early. Went right across the street to Ludgate Square. The square is filled with charming restaurants and shops. Stopped at a lovely restaurant had a Full English Breakfast. Wonderful. With a full belly, I... More

During the summer parishioners of St Brides take tours (£6) at 3.00 in the afternoon of the church. It was a fascinating tour much more interesting and diverse than we anticipated.The church is beautiful itself also. We got a great insight into the press and its connections with the church. The remembrance area for journalists kidnapped and also killed in... More
