  • July 2004, the time of my life I was completely gobsmacked by this church's outstanding acoustics while listening, in two different days, to lunch time organ recitals - which were then part of a celebration of sorts during that month where visiting organists would play during that time of day - for free! Listening to that which is any church organist's epitome: Mozart's "Toccata and Fugue in D minor" has definitely never been such an epiphanic experience as this one in St. Stephen's Walbrook!
  • An indifferent exterior belies an elegant, understated and becalmed interior. Here you will find one of the most beautiful formal spaces in all London. Wondrous and uplifting. Now what are you waiting for ?
  • Beautiful design by Wren. The volume of the space, the symmetry, the divine proportions, all create a sense of wonder.
  • Beautiful church designed by Wren. Hard not to look up at the magnificent dome. Lovely place for some quiet contemplation.
  • From the book I Never Knew that About London "Nothing prepares you for the beauty of the interior (there is no place in London where it is more satisfying to sit and wonder.)" Some refer to the gently rounded white stone alter as the Camembert.

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.
