  • My favourite church in London. Just can't explain the beauty of this place. Such a unique church.
  • This church has become famous after being the set of some scenes of the movie "Four weddings and a funeral" starring, among the others, Hugh Grant and Rowan Atkinson. Surely the normand architecture is breathtaking, it really feels like a jump in the past.
  • Find the churchyard by ducking through an old stone archway or wiggle along tiny backstreets. 41-42 cloth fair reportedly oldest house in city of London survived great fire.
  • Beautiful site and lovely cafe within the medieval type building.
  • my absolute favourite church in london. the simple beauty is hands down the best. one gets a "feeling" of spirituality here
