The area
Address
Neighborhood: Bloomsbury
Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance access to many of London's most popular attractions. It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated museums, including the must-see British Museum. Despite an understandable popularity with students, tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury retain a quiet, residential feel year round and throughout the week.

I was welcomed so wholeheartedly by the priest and a very well spoken kind woman .
The atmosphere in the church was exceptionaly peaceful. The smell and ambience was magnificent. I arrived after the morning service on Sunday. They let me in to pray and light a candle.
I am glad to have come across the church in my godly walk of ☮️ peace.
Thankyou St George church .

A 1730 Hawksmoor Gem of a Church
Sep 2020
We were lucky to find this 1730 Hawksmoor church open. I believe it is one of only six Hawksmoor churches surviving in London.
It is tucked away and hardly visible unless you are in front of it, but the unique tower looms above the neighbouring buildings. The tower is modelled on a description of the Mausoleum of Hallicarnassus and is topped, oddly, with a statue of King George 1st in Roman Dress.
The massive exterior columns need a good cleaning but are impressive.
The interior is surprisingly small and more square than you would anticipate. Quite plain but light and welcoming.
Worth a visit.

Came here multiple times to find the church firmly locked even though the lights were on inside. Nice on outside.

We were on an organised walk visiting Hawksmoore churches. We had pre-arranged access to the interior. The restoration of the inside makes a usable space for worship and preserve the design of the 18th century genius. The tower is like nothing else.

This older church is fairly small but boasts some very good acustics. This church has some great choir concerts well worth the visit.

Beautiful venue for angelic concert
Nov 2017 • Friends
Came here for second year in a row to see Nigel Shaw & Carolyn Hillyer perform their magical earthy music.
The space inside lends itself perfectly to the sounds of Carolyn’s singing and drumming, whilst Nigel’s flutes soared like larks above.
Beautiful!! Xx

Lovely church with strong Handel connections
Oct 2017 • Solo
This is the Anglican Parish church for London's wealthy Mayfair district. The composer Handel worshipped here and it now hosts an annual Handel music festival. The exterior is quite monumental belying a lovely and relatively simple interior, dominated by a stunning organ above the entrance. Well worth a visit.

Yet another church visited between waiting for trains. This is a small church with an attractive interior. Some lovely stained glass windows, nice alter and a magnificent chandelier.

Parish church
Apr 2017 • Family
St George's Church is a parish church in Bloomsbury Way, two minutes walk from the British Museum so it is nice to visit before or after a visit to the museum. The church is normally open from 1-4 pm daily. This church was designed and built by Nicholas Hawksmoor, a pupil and former assistant of Sir Christopher Wren in the English Baroque architectural style.The stepped tower was influenced by the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus, and topped by a statue of King George I in Roman dress.

Attractive church near the British Museum
Jan 2017 • Solo
This is a small but nevertheless attractive church located fairly close to the British Museum. When I visited it was closed and so it wasn't possible to go inside. Exterior still looks pretty good though.
