Very welcoming and were invited to stay for lunch after a very High Anglican service. Church very full and many regulars. Probably would be regarded by some as old school Anglican service.

I think this is one of the most beautiful churches in the City. Its history is similar to most other City churches - 900 years of ups and downs, the Great Fire, Wren, WWII. The wooden reredos behind the altar is colourful and vaguely baroque (with a golden pelican!), a statue and a stained glass window show St Magnus with his Viking helmet and there are tombs and memorials all around. When I visited there were helpful and welcoming volunteers (I think they keep the church open)

Mass here is done properly with all the bells and smells. Beautiful music and organ. Refreshments in the crypt afterwards is welcoming and friendly. Great for a church visit for a service or just a look. Stunning church

The church is surrounded by modern buildings and it takes a little while to find. It is a beautiful old church and well worth a visit. There is a printed guide which explains the different pictures, ornaments and religious items of significance to be found in the church. There is a 20ft model of the original 1100 London Bridge which has been beautifully crafted in exquisite detail. Sadly it is not very well displayed in a glass case with little room for visitors to see it; however since there were very few people there when we went it didn’t matter much. We stayed for the lunch time service and were warmly welcomed.

As with a lot of the old buildings within the City area they are hidden by the new and modern constructions. This is another fine example of a lovely church off the tourist trail, which is so beautiful and so worth a visit. It has a fine model of the old London Bridge which in its self makes for a worthwhile visit.
