Another interesting if rather small church. Dedicated to basket makers and there was an exhibition of early shoes. Free entry.

When I visited the church it was very dark, and yet looking at photos of the interior on the web it would appear to be a bright and light building. No other visitors. I hadn’t set out to visit the church, I just happened to...More

I found this little church while waiting to go into the Sky garden. I had never known about it & found the displays very interesting. Also of interest being a Wren church. Worth a visit.

For lovers of Wren's architecture, St. Margaret Pattens is by no means the most impressive or ornate of Wren's City churches, but it has a number of distinctive features that make it worth adding to the list of must-see Wren buildings. In addition to its...More

There are so many Wren churches to see in London, so I always have to make hard choices. One I especially admire is St Margaret Pattens. It's wedged uncomfortably among modern 20th-century buildings. Wren built this in the 1680s, after the 1666 Great Fire. Many...More
