Delay in posting review - just re-found receipt. Lovely venue / miserable staff who don’t engage. Bought a slice of cake and tea. I told the staff that they really needed a cake cover - clearly dry and seemingly stale. Told staff - no refund...More

We were strolling the neighborhoods off of Brick Lane and ran into this beautiful Anglican church built in the early 1700s. We didn't go in but it looks like it is used as a music venue. Worth the detour if you are nearby!

This is probably the most iconic and beautiful building in the Spitalfields area, a beautiful design by Hawksmoor. Unfortunately, the church was closed when we tried to visit in the break between Christmas and New Year, so seeing the interior will have to wait for...More

We've been going here for a while now. It's a spectacular building, and has a great cafe too. The highlight by far is the 5pm Sunday service they run. Great music, friendly people, and free food and drinks. Hope you'll love it as much as...More

Located in London’s East End, Spitalfields area, Nicolas Hawkmoor’s magnificently restored Baroque masterpiece, this (very) tall-spired Anglican church was built between the years 1714 and 1729 as part of the church building program backed by Queen Anne. Beautifully austere or sever exterior, with an amazing...More

For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its
most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the
next big global trend, the hipster zone of
Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around
the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain
hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers
throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting
some of London's most popular bars and clubs.
