  • This is a large central London church very close to the Wallace collection museum. It can be a relaxing place to contemplate when you have had enough of the busy streets of London. Entrance is free.  more »
  • There are few places that wow you like this. This is on the same level of beauty and awe as the Basilica in Rome and blue mosque in Istanbul. It is stunning! It is also hidden, so unassuming. Definite...  more »
  • It is a neo-Gothic church from very beginning of the 20th, so well constructed and with so much detail that it could be truly Gothic. The atmosphere contributes a lot: smells like Beeswax candles (of the of truth, no lamp) and sometimes with incense. Between ceremonies, the atmosphere is quiet and collected, with soft lights: ideal for a time of rest and reflection. If you coincide with a mass, you can match one in latin, which transports you to the years of authentic Gothic. Is large, almost Cathedral size small, is full of chapels (including one to San Jose, with altar and candles and everything) and nooks and crannies, and is very clean and well maintained; and well heated. If you walk you will find a chapel next to a tapestry with the coat of arms of the King of Spain, donated to the Church by the King of Spain at the beginning of 1900, with an interesting inscription. As a clue, the postal address of this church, which is entered from George Street, central street in the charming neighborhood of Marylebone (within walking distance of Oxford Street) is actually 22, Spanish Place, which today is an adjacent callejoncito.

  • My parents married here on 14th.November 1940. That night saw the great air raid on Coventry.
