    An incredible historical place....wonderful to see Westminster Abbey in person..having watched Royal Weddings , The Queen and Prince Philip's funeral and recently King Charles Coronation.
    I was also very interested in all the historic burials in this Abbey.

    Architecture , sculptures and stained glass is wondrous. So happy I visited!

    This cathedral was absolutely beautiful! We had the London Pass and decided to go in while passing and we were not disappointed. The hundreds of stairs to get to the top was not a feat for the faint hearted, but it was so worth it.
    Audio guides provided give you an insight into the surroundings.

    Impressive external appearance with striking brickwork. Free entrance. Of notice is the dark ceiling area which in many cathedrals is usually ornate. A large cathedral with on going services.

    Typical Templar church. The interior is understated elegance. On the ground of the round church, there lied some statues of Templar knights. Among them, there is "the greatest knight that ever lived" - William Marshal, who was invested into the order of the Knights Templar on his deathbed.

    The “Da Vinci Code” trend has faded. There are not many tourists, it is tranquil and serene.

    This area was originally the territory of the Knights Templar and is now the Inner Temple and Middle Temple Inns of Court. In addition to the church, there are Middle Temple Garden, Inner Temple Garden, and some beautiful small atrium gardens.

    Beautiful cathedral which is well worth a visit in this busy corner of London. Entry is free although you can make a small donation, cafe looked interesting and there is also a really good shop. Look out for the cathedral cat too! Nice little garden area which makes it hard to believe you’re in the centre of London. Some beautiful stained glass windows, Shakespeare and Harvard connections galore. Well worth a visit.

    St Martin-in-the-Fields is an Anglican church. The Church is in Trafalgar Square, which is a center of London. This Church of England is a fine structure rated from the 18th century. The Church is one of the finest in London. Apart from other things, the crypt has performances of the jazz type. It's popular with locals and visitors from the United Kingdom and overseas We looked around when we visited St Martin's when we were in Trafalger Square, it was beautiful.

    Having walked past here on a number of occasions over the years,we decided to go in. The interior ground floor is very interesting and light and airy. There are two sets of stairs to the crypt, and we found the stairs with no signage,so we were unaware it led to a crypt. Having gone downstairs, there is a fascinating display of often unrelated bits of the history of London. These include the remains of a Roman floor,a commemorative plaque celebrating the baptism of William Penn (founder of Pennsylvania who was baptised here), and a statute from 900AD. Well worth 45 mins of your time.

    Great preaching and music at the 11 am sung Eucharist in a 900 year old church; a superb Anglican service of worship. And coffee, too.

    Actually, my trip was with my wife in 1996......my son, daughter-in-law, and
    grandson are going next month (Aug,) This is a great destination for someone
    to see the place where Methodism was born, John Wesley's home, office and church. A person can sit at his desk and look out the large windows and see his
    mother's (Suzanna's) grave across the street. The church and downstairs museum
    and quite informative.
    My wife, now deceased, and I were there right after Princess Diana had passed.
    The church had been renovated with gifts from Margaret and Dennis Thatcher,
    Elton John, and many others.

    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.

    Winston Churchill Statue is a big statue made of bronze in Parliament Square. It is a must to see whether you like history or not!

    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.

    It was founded in the twelfth century and rebuilt from 1486 to 1523. It is a such a beautiful church. It is a medieval masterpiece, check out the details inside and outside. Be prepared to wait a lot to get into the church...
