St. Paul's Church (The Actors' Church), London

4.4
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 garden in the hart of London. Historical Church dedicated to the arts. I really like it. Charity ship at the entrance.
  • A very nice and peaceful place with a wonderful garden in the heart of Covent Garden. The bad thing is that when they have a concert sometimes they don't let you in to pray.
  • Do not confuse StPaul’s CHURCH with St. Paul’s CATHEDRAL! Two vastly different places of worship and both quite wonderful to visit!
  • The garden is amazing, and it has a bunch of famous artists who passed. There is also British history of people who've gotten buried. It also has live performances.
  • Lovely church, and very holy feeling. A must see in London.
