I'd been in St Bride's before but had never been down into the Crypt. It holds a small but fascinating potted history of Fleet Street as well as Roman and Mediaeval remains of the old church. It won't detain you for more than half an hour or so, but it's a really interesting little surprise if you're in the Fleet... More

Lovely church in Fleet Street. The carol service on Thursday 11th. December was superb. The new rector made everyone welcome. The choir and organist were wonderful, with beautiful singing and harmonies. Everyone including the well known actors, for their readings, are to be congratulated

This church that was designed by Christopher Wren is extremely pretty. It's unique design was the inspiration for the shape of wedding cakes. Have a look and it is obvious. The church is less crowded than St Paul's and well worth a visit.

A spiritual gem in the midst of the city! A Christopher Wren masterpiece and very expensive when originally built with an exquisite tower. Beautiful inside and the crypt has many historical relics and a very interesting little museum of Fleet Street history. Well worth a visit.

They have a very cool crypt, that shows the history of this church and it's community from the Roman times until the present. With stuff that's been dug up from the site, very neat.

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
