    It's a beautiful temple and well maintained. The volunteers are very friendly and supporting. Starting from the baggage counter,at gate, security volunteers, the in-house volunteers, all are very humble and cherry on the cake was meeting devotees Nitesh and Rashmika Patel. They interacted with our kids to educate them about Hindu traditions and learn virtues. Must visit for all for peace of mind and get the blessings🙏🙏

    An idyll of peace..beautiful building, friendly people, a welcoming, clean cafe and clean, state of the art disabled toilets..all within a minute's walk of Victoria tube station. I often find London overwhelming and distressingly anonymous and deeply appreciated the space, peace and the welcome when I visited on 27th October.. I am thinking that this would be a great place for me to suggest to friends for meeting up in central London over the winter.

    Thank you.

    Beautiful church kerk: high and long, Partly late gothic, but renovated and rebuilt till the 20th century.
    The house/church cat was present, But we came late for a children’s choir. The onlynthing we heard were the dying tones of the organ, and the bells in the tower. A lot of loud bells!

    The Church of St. Bartholomew the Great is tucked away in the city of London but well worth hunting down.

    Close to St Bart's hospital and also Smithfield Meat Market this old church is set back away from the street.

    It is open during the day for people to visit and it is suggested you make a donation. You can pay cash or tap your debit or credit card.

    The church is stunning. Really grand architecture but it is not a big church so it is quite intimate.

    A friend in England made me aware of the London Oratory property & its church prior to our brief holiday stay in Kensington, so my wife & I took the opportunity to attend a Sunday morning Tridentine Latin Mass in the Oratory’s stunningly beautiful Italianate Baroque Revival-style Church of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. This huge Roman Catholic church was built between 1880 & 1884, with the South-facing façade (along Brompton Road) added in 1893 and the outer dome completed in 1895-96. It is the second-largest Catholic church building in London, exceeded in overall size only by the Westminster Cathedral. The nave of the church (central congregational seating space) is wider than that of the famous St Paul's Anglican Cathedral, and the overall decorative beauty exceeds that of St Paul's more recognised interior. While most of the statuary & other intricate interior adornments are from the 19th & 20th centuries, there are two sets of late 17th Century pieces worth seeking out: the statues of the 12 Apostles lining the East & West walls of the nave (by Tuscan sculptor Giuseppe Mazzuoli); and the altar & altarpiece of The Lady Chapel in the South transept (by Florentine sculptors Francesco Corbarelli & his sons in 1693, originally from the Chapel of the Archconfraternity of the Rosary in a Dominican church in Brescia, Italy).

    Whether for attendance at a regularly scheduled religious service (the London Oratory Junior Choir - ages 8 to 16 - sing the 10 AM Sunday Mass and at the Tuesday evening Benediction) or a self-guided tour between services, my wife & I strongly recommend including on your London itinerary a visit to this inspirational religious & architectural treasure.

    Located between Bank and Cannon Street stations it is easy to miss St Stephen's church. It is close to the Starbucks and if it was not for the fact it is an old building you would miss it.

    If you like old churches then you should probably hunt down this hidden gem.

    A truly beautiful and historic church. Whether you are religious or not, you will not regret visiting this gem. Step inside and enjoy a quiet moment of reflection, enjoy the magnificent architecture, peruse the books of dedication to fallen RAF. Then step outside and admire the statue of Dr. Johnson and survey the WWII shrapnel damage still visible on the building. So much history in one building in a part of a London that is awash with it, right on the border where the City of Westminster meets the City of London.

    If you’re fortunate enough to be here, as we were, when the bells play “Oranges and Lemons”, even better. They are played every day at 9 am, noon, 3pm and 6pm. (St. Clement Eastcheap is actually the church referenced in the song, but hey ho).

    There are also many great pubs and restaurants nearby to grab a drink or lunch/dinner.

    We at Treorchy Male Choir were honoured to perform here on the 16th of September, 2023. We were very kindly invited by the family of the late Ruth Madoc, as our choir has much history with her. it is a beautiful church with some fantastic history behind it. It was a privilege for us all to sing here.

    Nearly 50 years after seeing the early foundations of the mosque being laid, I finally went inside. What an experience! My only complaint is that the website isn't half as warm, open and welcoming as the staff and other visitors were to us. So don't let that put you off. Allow plenty of time to walk round, yes, but also allow yourself space for spiritual reflection and openness . So many people were so pleased we visited and showed an interest and were ever so willing to answer questions and share their beliefs. Think: The bigots, racists and Little Englanders would hate you to visit a mosque. A good reason to do your bit for love, peace and understanding. A beautiful place.

    You can find this lovely artistic church in Bride Lane just off Fleet Street. Saint Brides Church is named after an Irish Saint called Bride. She was the patron Saint of Ireland. It is also called the Journalist’s Church because it was located in the heart of the British Newspaper Industry. There has been a church at this point for centuries. The current building is it 8th reincarnation. The medieval church here was destroyed by the 1666 Fire of London. Christopher Wren designed a beautiful new church here. It’s layered spire inspired a baker to bake a multi tiered wedding cake for his bride thus starting a new tradition. The 1940 Blitz caused the next destruction. This revealed the ancient crypts and bones of thousands of people buried beneath this church. They were all preserved when Wren’s church was restored. Do visit this quaint church to see layers upon layers of history. Do not miss the Roman ruins in the basement.

    Approached through some street food carts, this church is very easily missed. Inside it's got some nice stained glass windows but the star is the fabulous wood carvings by Grinling Gibbons behind the altar. Such delicacy of touch is magical.

    Friday prayer in the mosque was a delightful experience as expected. Due to renovation inside the mosque it was tight and packed, but we managed.

    Beautiful ancient church & glorious stained glass windows, at the end of what appears to be a private street, which in itself has some lovely buildings.
