This has to come in two parts: 1. The cafe/restaurant is underneath the church, in the crypt. It serves inexpensive (for London) food including soups and sandwiches, as well as more ambitious main courses. Beer, wine and free water are all available. I'd say the...More

The crypt houses a quality cafeteria style place which is very affordable and serves excellent comfort food. Gift shop as well downstairs. Rent a seat cushion for a pound before going upstairs to view excellent chamber music and choir groups.

You can always enjoy wonderful classical music or jazz at this legendary church. And be sure to have a meal/drink in the crypt.

This was a very well attended lunch time classical music concert by Fabiana and Paula Chavez, in a beautiful church overlooking Trafagar Square. The acoustics were wonderful and the piano music played by the identical twins, left the audience enthralled. It was a memorable experience...More

I always enjoy coming here for a concert. The acoustics are good although the view is mixed depending on where you sit. Downstairs tends to have better views but note column placement. Upstairs you may need to share the box and tend to only be...More

The Church is not ornate and breathtaking as many are, It seems utilitarian - for ts purpose of worship I suppose. The choir perform regularly at lunch time and rehearse prior to the event. They are OUTSTANDING The whole place is filled with beautiful sacred...More
