  • St Mary-le-Bow is a beautiful Church, which has so much character and charm, nested into a cozy part of Cheapside. There is a lovely cafe available if you with to enjoy a meal during your visit.
  • Don't forget to see the John Milton monument between entrance and exit on wall.
  • Beautiful church that also during the day serves food and drinks.
  • I have to say I really do adore this lovely church. The spire is acknowledges as being one of Wren's finest and most majestic in the City of London and it's up in the belfry hang the fabled bow bells. To be a cockney you must be born within the sound of Bow Bells. However, for me one of the treasures of the church is the lovely old crypt chapel reached down a flight of stairs in the south west corner of the churchyard. It's such a peaceful and tranquil place and has a magical ambiance to it that keeps the 21st century ell at bay.
  • Born in The City of London Maternity Hospital in 1932. Makes me a cockney, but raised in Kent, so Picked up the lingo. This is my first view of the Famous building. Looks alright to me. A lot of glass and concrete surrounding it though.

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
