There are many nice churches in and around the City of London, but this one is quite famous. It has the famous Bow Bells that make a true cockney if you are born within their sound. Cheapside can be a boring place, especially at the...More
Feeling of space in Church as it is painted white. Elaborate gold fittings but not too ornate. Intricate designs on stained glass. Famous for its church bells and crypt.
Sadly a small group of women were having a prayer meeting in the crypt and selfishly...More
The 6 Bow Bells. If you can hear the sound of those bells at the place where you were born, then you are classified as a true Londoner - a Cockney!
This 1000 year old church has stood through everything that the world could throw...More
We were walking past the other evening and heard the bells tolling, we had no idea that this was the famous church of St Mary le Bow. We were cockneys for a few minutes. It was evening and the lights were on so we decided...More
If you are born within the sound of bow bells you are said to be a true cockney and the church seems to be a place of calm surrounded by the frenetic every day business world outside. It is a small church dating back to...More

This is worth a visit if you a near, for the lovely windows and decor in the place.

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.

Technically, no. I was born 8 miles from the church but like many from the East End regard myself as a Cockney. I doubt that you could hear the bells from the hospital in Praed St in West London either. East Enders lay... More
Technically, no. I was born 8 miles from the church but like many from the East End regard myself as a Cockney. I doubt that you could hear the bells from the hospital in Praed St in West London either. East Enders lay claim to being Cockneys but not the rest of London.
