Without doubt one of London's 10 finest churches, its just immaculate. Reminds me of a Cambridge college chapel in shape and style. Superb carving on the pulpit - Gibbonsesque - , fine reredos and some hidden beautiful plaster work. Do search out the courtyard garden...More

This really is a hidden gem that you can easily walk passed. It is like a different world inside with lovely carving and atmospheric lighting. There is some beautiful stained glass and a lovely collection of mainly 16th century Silver.

Walking into the church the first thing that caught my eye was the B&W tiled floor, the walls are white and there are plenty of windows, so the church is bright and light. The pews are at right angles to the altar, giving the impression...More
