  • After climbing up the 311 stairs of Sir Christopher Wren's monument to the Great Fire of London, then going down to the church he designed..St. Magnus the Martyr is a "must see" You will not be disappointed this is a lovely no really really lovely church with so many features you cannot possibly take it all in during one visit. The design, the interiors and stained glass windows. I actually passed through at lunch time and there was a small service going on to the left hand side of the church. I found this quite spiritually uplifting, obviously I took some photos which I hope was not indiscreet but had to sit listen and I felt a certain tranquillity and peace which I really enjoyed. Very interesting is a small blue plaque in the courtyard, took a photo of but says. "This Churchyard formed part of the roadway approach to the old London Bridge 1176 -1831" Now that is what I call a real part of London history. Sincerely adore this church and is on my "must return" list.
  • Beautiful Wren church, rebuilt after the great fire, which guarded north entrance to the old London Bridge.
  • Christopher Wren's baroque church near the bank of the river Thames not far from the starting point to the great fire of London and itself a victim of it. New ring of bells peal for services. High alter and stained glass windows a must see.
  • It's actually fairly ugly building.
  • Nice little church, the model of the old London is impressive. St. Magnus looks a bit like Thor :)
