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...More

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...More

We saw the TV programme of Tony Robinson walking the Thames Pathway and have been inspired to visit some of the places he visited. In the church you will find a 20ft model of the original 1100 London Bridge. Also some of the original building...More

This is a rather high Anglican Church, even higher than most Roman Catholic churches. Their liturgy is fascinating and splendid, which is according to English Missal, basically a Tridentine Mass in English.

This church is very interesting. Its portico was the road leading to the old London Bridge and indeed there is an excellent model of that bridge inside the church itself. There are beautiful carvings and paintings as well as a very interesting guide sheet.

For Anglo-Catholics who like liturgy done well in an ideal setting. Lovely Baroque furnishings in a real Restoration church. Liturgy solemn and un-fussy. Lovely Marian shrine. Friendly church - seems to appeal to gay men.

City of London
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

Yes - it's open all year. I would check their website (I can't post the link, but google it) if you want to avoid clashing with services. There are also contact details on the website.

If you go to the churches website it may tell you it's opening hours. Google St Magnus the Martyr.
