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

(85+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site
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. Work out when and for how long to visit St. Paul's Church (The Actors' Church) and other London attractions using our handy London holiday planner.

  • In Covent Garden side entrance of the Church is a church located in Covent Garden, but does not, on the other side. From Covent Garden's perspective, and buildings seen from the front entrance, there is a big difference, like in another building!

  • With the famous portico facing the throngs on Covent Garden serving as a backdrop to street performers, rather slip around to enter the 'actors' church and small enclosed garden with a surfeit of park benches, to admire the simple but impressive interior. Grade I Listed, attributed to Inigo Jones and worth the diversion.
  • Stunning- an architectural gem, but super pricey to go in and see.
  • Amazing building and fun atmosphere around
  • Sehr schöne kleine Kirche direkt am Covent Garden Market.
