Owner description: St Martin-in-the-Fields is a landmark. Its fine Georgian architecture and prominent location place it at the heart of the nation. Its work has valued historic tradition, but St Martin’s has always been innovative in response to changing needs. From London’s first free lending library to the first religious broadcast, St Martin’s has broken new ground in defining what it means to be a church. Solidifying its position for years to come, St Martin's has an award-winning cafe, puts on concerts with London's best musicians, and hosts fantastic events in its unique subterranean spaces. Free lunchtime concerts take place every Monday, Tuesday and Friday, a fantastic way to hear both established and emerging stars of the classical scene. As well as the fantastic food on offer in the Cafe in the Crypt, during the summer months St Martin's opens the Cafe in the Courtyard, offering a host of al fresco delights.

This venue has a great cafeteria with good food at resonable prices. If you have never tried brass rubbings, they make great souveneirs or gifts. They have many choices for brass rubbings. Church also has many free concerts and events.

The church is nothing spectacular, but it has an amazing crypt downstairs. It's kind of hidden and it's not a place you would go if you don't know it, but if you see the door open, just go downstairs!

For good classical music concerts, then attend one of the concerts regularly presented in the evenings at the Church. I make a point of attending a concert whenever I am visiting London and never disappointed. Recently, I attended the Handel and Vivalidi concert and the ensemble played very well. Included in the program was the Four Seasons and the violin soloist led the work with flair and excellence. Booking ahead using the online service is very straightforward and easy. I suggest booking seats in the Nave and hiring a cushion for your seat. But the sound quality is good no matter where you take your seat as it is a smallish venue. The Church is located in Trafalgar Square and so is easy to get to and to find.

I started having a pot of tea under the remarkable vaulted ceilings of the Crypt, a good place to meet and chat. Then upstairs into the body of the lovely atmospheric church where a young pianist was coping very well with the spreading octaves of Chopin. It all felt very comforting and peaceful - I could have stayed all day.

What a lovely tranquil church. It is beautiful without being over opulent. The organ is magnificent. Worth a visit.
