If you ever have a few free moments close to St Paul’s in the City of London pop in to this wonderful church just over the road from Mansion House Tube! Great place for a breather and cup of tea!

What an amazing ceiling! Late Perpendicular, this Wren church follows the style of the earlier one burnt down in the Great Fire of London. It is the only Wren church built in the Gothic style.

Most of the windows are modern dating back to the 1950s, as much of the Victorian stained glass was shattered in the air raids of 1940-41. The west window as shown below by John Crawford, commemorates the defence of London against air attacks during the Second World War.
