    I visited the St. Paul's Cathedral in the morning when there are not so many people around. It is a masterpiece of Cristopher Wren and must to see and visit!

    Wonderful visit! This brilliant place is impressively large, with a number of buildings and with a number of courtyards, each one amazingly beautiful and each one incredibly interesting, which makes for a great outing, with lots to see and with lots to do – one day really wasn’t enough! The beauty of the sights and the richness of the history speak for themselves, but what really made our visit were the staff and the volunteers. The two tours which we attended, a tour of the Painted Hall led by Sue and a tour on Lord Nelson led by Chenda, were brilliant. Sue and Chenda were so knowledgeable and so enthusiastic, and added so much to our enjoyment of our visit – Sue gave us a wonderful insight into the symbolism behind the Painted Hall and Chenda gave us a superb look at the life of Lord Nelson, all the more impressive as the tours on Lord Nelson are pretty much brand new. Another star of our visit, who we met in the skittle alley and in the visitor centre, was Daren who was an absolute mine of fascinating information. He seemed to know everything there was to know, and his knowledge and his enthusiasm shone through in everything he said. It was absolutely fantastic, especially his information on the, now largely vanished, but really fascinating, medieval palace and its predecessors. All in all, it was a perfect day – great setting, great history, great facilities and great people. Top marks all round – we will definitely be going back!

    West minister Cathedral is an outstanding building and the structure is very commanding. Both externally and internally.

    We visited the church this week. What a beautiful place. excellent information around the walls giving the history of the church and the Knights Templar. Worth the stairs up to the gallery to look down .

    A wonderful piece of history. It is off the beaten path but has some amazing photo opportunities. There is a small garden where you can picnic and a small cafe onsite. There is no parking. It is very tranquil and serene.

    The oldest Church in London FREE to Visit.
    More than 800 years of history. This church is survived the great fire 1666, WW1 and WW2.

    It is hidden in the oldest areas in London and it is lovely. FREE entrance. If you like old London, wander around in the streets around the church to see the oldest buildings and pubs in London. Also, it looks like a Harry Potter movie set.

    Not lots of tourist in this area. But lots of history lovers around!

    It may be the oldest Church in London, dating from 675AD, but the current building is not from that date.
    While it is nice the real features are the Crypt and Museum underneath where there is a model of Roman London and many artefacts.
    Definitely worth a visit

    Really much of England's social history was influenced and shaped by Wesley,including our politics.
    The Chapel is still revered as a place of worship.

    This church is on the site of one of the oldest places of Christian worship . The surrounding grounds harbour the graves and memorials of many very notable people . Among them is the mausoleum for Sir John Soane and his wife - designed by Sir John - which provided the outline template shape for Gilbert Scott's design of the famous red GPO telephone boxes . These grounds also were the backdrop for the famous photoshoot of the Beatles day in London - taken just shortly before the group broke up . Contact with the church ( a very good website ) will provide an excellent guide to the history of the church and the surrounding graves .

    This is a respectful, tall sculpture of the former British Prime Minister found in front of the House of Commons. The Square itself is peppered with monuments and other statues immortalising key figures in British history, however, the Churchill monument is perhaps the best known here.

    This church is simply stunning. The baptismal font is a must-see, carved with stories from Genesis and the space is beautiful and reverent.

    Get a tour on Tuesdays to be shown the Charnel house, we were even shown the research room full of stored bones as well as the charnel house itself by our informative guide.

    Not closed as Tripadvisor says. We called in hoping for a Tuesday lunchtime free concert but there are none on for now. But the church is beautiful and they have quite a few RAF related artefacts and some special record books. Lovely.

    Christopher Wren designed after the earlier church burned in the Great Fire of London. The first church was built over the The Temple of Mithras and moved across the street to its present location in 1430. It is a domed church and listed as one of the ten best churches in London.

    Disappointing because it stands between Westminster Abbey and the Houses of Parliament . It’s somewhat plain in appearance.
