4.4/5 based on 70+ reviews on the web
A small church in Covent Garden, St. Paul's Church (The Actors' Church) has earned the nickname "the actor's church" thanks to a close association with the theater community. Built in 1631 according to plans by architect and stage designer Inigo Jones, the church's theatrical roots date back just as far. Today, the church is home to a professional theater company called Iris Theatre. Wander freely through the building to see tributes to all the well-known actors who have passed through the doors, including Charlie Chaplin, Judy Dench, and Gwen Stefani, who even held a wedding here.

  • Beautiful church, then you have interest in churches, you should go into a turn. Experienced himself, however, that it was a bit too expensive. If you want to visit the upper reaches of the Church (there are 3 floors up to visit) so my tip is to think about how you are afraid of heights. Once you begin to go so you can only turn when you come on a new plan. When you get to the 3rd floor so you are 87 meters above the ground floor (if I remember correctly) and you walk on the outside of the tower. Powerful, but not for the height.

  • Sehr schöne kleine Kirche direkt am Covent Garden Market.
  • It is a splendid and serene Place.
  • The church and garden are really lovely, but the people who run the church can be very arrogant and rude. They close the garden randomly, and if you are in there when they decide to close it, they will ask you to leave with a snotty tone and expect you to obey immediately. It doesn't matter what you are doing (eating, relaxing, admiring) they want you out. They've already locked up all of the gates and only give you one option to exit. I felt like a naughty child who shouldn't have been in there the last time this happened to me. It's a shame.
  • Beautiful church and really good acoustics for live music.
  • all i want is a room this church
