This is Jewish history personified. It is an amazing building, rich in heritage. The architecture is breathtaking.
The oldest synagogue in London. Worth a visit!
Took a bit of time to find the entrance. Walked in off the street and davened shacharis. Minyan was small but welcoming. Nice breakfast. Enjoyed my visit.
One of the four remaining synagogues in the City and East End of London, Bevis Marks has an interesting history, having opened in 1701. It's found on a little alleyway near Liverpool St station (if you can imagine this is how most of the city would have looked back in that area) and given the modest entrance is surprisingly grand once you venture inside. It's infrequently open to non-Jews such as the recent Open House Weekend, so do go along if the opportunity arises. It's a remarkable reminder of the huge Jewish community that once made the East End their home.
