  • We visited this church after the London towers (which are nearby) a parishioner welcomes us warmly and we can ask plenty of questions. Having survived the great fire of London, this building is one of the medieval time alone and this influences his architectural style.

  • Nice old church in the city of London, England. Nice to look around Also there a small area with seating in the grave yard . Where there information say some of the body's that died in the great fire of London are remain. There is a information board telling you about the history. It's a good place to visit if you walking around the area and see some old London history.
  • Nice peaceful churchyard to sit down and enjoy a moment of quiet in the heart of London.
  • Nice! The church is one of the smallest in the City and, although it has suffered some damage and rebuild, it is one of only a handful of medieval City churches that escaped the Great Fire of London in 1666. Samuel Pepys regularly used the church.
  • Incredibly atmospheric from the moment you enter. It's full of history but the overwhelming impression is of calm - centuries of it.
  • Very friendly staff!!!! Samuel and elizabeth pepys buried here. Also small botannical garden in church yard. Plague victims buried here too
