I was on a tour of old churches with my class when I found this place. It has been turned into a little café. We thought it was the cutest thing. It looked as if there were a lot of business people meeting here to...More

The Guild Church of St Mary Aldermary is a particularly fine church situated in the city of London with plain white interior and impressive stained-glass windows.

This is definitely worth a visit, a quite stunning church with a lovely café inside. It looks nothing from the outside - buildings all around but beautiful inside. The café is called Host - a great place to stop and have a coffee

The best parts of this Christopher Wren church are the spectacular fan-vaulted plaster ceiling and the skewed east end of the church above the apse, with its painted ceiling. It's strangely slanted but not so much as to run parallel to the line of King...More

Just outside of Exit 4 of Mansion House underground station, this church doesn't look much from outside. Walking in, the first thing you see is a well-run and quite busy cafe. However, go beyond this and see the church proper. Look up at the fantastic...More

The location of St Mary Aldermary is behind St Paul's Cathedral, about half way between Bank and Mansion House tube stations. The original church dates back to early medieval times but the current building was begun in 1500 and was finally completed in 1629. Unfortunately...More
