A wonderful evening of Prose and poetry. There’s art installations in the ground among the beautiful flowers. The vicar and staffs were helpful, friendly and very welcoming.

Did you check on TripAdvisor or Bookings? Put in that you want to be near St. Johns Waterloo and see what comes up. We stayed at the Hilton London Kensington - bus just outside the door and tube nearby.
