The area
Address
Neighborhood: City of London
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 neighborhoods. 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 neighborhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment 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.

One of the Christopher Wren buildings. He was the architect responsible for the rebuilding of London after the great fire in 1666. It was rebuilt again after the WW1 and 2 bombing. Simple and clean lines is a Wren mark. If you keep walking the path beside the church you will end up in a hidden corner with a cute pub.

Interesting church that I think may be looked after by the community. It’s a long standing building in excellent condition. Worth a look.

we only saw this at night, and revelled in its size, its dominance of the surrounding area and its wonderful history

Because it’s situated just outside what were the ancient eastern walls of the City of London St. Botolph’s counts as an East End church albeit in a part of the East End into which the city has migrated. The first church on this site dating from 1212 largely survived the Great Fire of 1666 but was demolished and completely rebuilt in 1724-9. To produce a striking frontage onto Bishopsgate the architect designed a tower at the east end. It was slightly damaged in the 1940 Blitz and the IRA bombing of Bishopsgate in 1993. It is currently home not just to an Anglican congregation but also an Orthodox parish. It has an extensive courtyard home to a small ornamental pond, a sculpture part of a trail throughout the City of London and, this afternoon, a couple of vagrants. Within the grounds is also a church hall and a Victorian Turkish bath.

Like many churches in the City (though this was actually outside the city walls), St Botolph has a long and interesting history going back 800 years.
The original church survived the Great Fire, but still it was rebuilt in the XVIII century and is now a classic example of Anglican Baroque church with a few more recent additions. Though it is nice, i think it is very average with nothing special or memorable.

As with many churches in central London they are swallowed up by the surroundings and the modern structures. Worth a visit.

My wife and I were here for The Eve Appeal Christmas Carol Concert.
The service was most pleasant and the choir exceptional, to be recommended.
The charity is also most worthwhile.

This was the location of my son's christening and so has a very special place in my families memory. The Church is located a few minutes walk from London Liverpool Railway Station and is in the heart of the modern City of London. Easy for busy commuters to miss!

In historical terms the Church is the Regimental Church of the Honourable Artillery Company (HAC). This is my family link and the reason for the selection as the venue.

The staff in the Church could not have be more friendly and welcoming making the planning of the whole event a real pleasure. Located next to the Church is a small hall which is often used for events. This requires external catering and a bit of planning however we found a catering company also in Bishopsgate which made the logistics easy. The whole four hours of our family event went smoothly with everyone, young, old and friends loving the whole experience.

The regular Church Services takes place on a Wednesday and Thursday lunchtime. I was lucky my first visit was on Candlemass which is always a wonderful day to see an old building lit up. Wednesday is a full choir event and to see the Church is full glory this is the best day. Thursday is a said service so a more reflective event.

I came here for a concert at the weekend and the music was truly beautiful, the choir outstanding quality. The only negative was how cold the church was, all the audience had their coats on and even with my coat on I was cold but the church has good acoustics and is a good location for people working nearby who want to pop in for a prayer or some quietness in the day time. The church has an interesting history for those who want to look it up..
