Popped in on a wet Monday morning in April. Was pleasantly surprised by its simplicity. A man was tuning the piano so I could hear the acoustics were good. One or two folks asleep in the pews by the walls but no trouble.

In this church near Trafalgar square you can find a home of hospitality, enjoy its baroque architecture and sometimes listening to classical music.
