Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    I have visited the cathedral during covid when was free entrance one day and also the choir was present. Was an amazing experience and I had goose bumps and tears all way long during the choir programme, I was impressed.

    Fascinating look at the conservation work on the Benjamin West painting. Bob our volunteer guide gave us lots of background information about the chapel and the painting, and details of how the conservation is being done. We saw the conservators working on the painting. A once-in-a lifetime expeience.

    Right next door to Borough Market, this is the oldest Gothic Church in all of London. Very impressive interior and the gardens outside have places to sit, contemplate, relax. Very friendly people about. If you like churches/cathedrals, you should be sure to visit Southwark.

    A wonderful building with a great history.

    There are plenty of boards to tell the history of the church, which is extensive.

    Major reconstructions followed bomb damage in ww2 and these are well chronicled .
    There was an excellent guide who was very knowledgeable.

    Go down to the crypt to see some original tessellated roman floor as well.

    We were fortunate to visit later in the day to hear a free organ recital.

    Actually, my trip was with my wife in 1996......my son, daughter-in-law, and
    grandson are going next month (Aug,) This is a great destination for someone
    to see the place where Methodism was born, John Wesley's home, office and church. A person can sit at his desk and look out the large windows and see his
    mother's (Suzanna's) grave across the street. The church and downstairs museum
    and quite informative.
    My wife, now deceased, and I were there right after Princess Diana had passed.
    The church had been renovated with gifts from Margaret and Dennis Thatcher,
    Elton John, and many others.

    This church is on the site of one of the oldest places of Christian worship . The surrounding grounds harbour the graves and memorials of many very notable people . Among them is the mausoleum for Sir John Soane and his wife - designed by Sir John - which provided the outline template shape for Gilbert Scott's design of the famous red GPO telephone boxes . These grounds also were the backdrop for the famous photoshoot of the Beatles day in London - taken just shortly before the group broke up . Contact with the church ( a very good website ) will provide an excellent guide to the history of the church and the surrounding graves .

    This is a respectful, tall sculpture of the former British Prime Minister found in front of the House of Commons. The Square itself is peppered with monuments and other statues immortalising key figures in British history, however, the Churchill monument is perhaps the best known here.

    Many people don't know that this charming little church is just a few steps from the nerve center of London on Piccadilly.
    In London these small churches are also worth a visit to get an idea of ​​what the typical Anglican churches are like that the faithful who live here usually attend
    It has a small and charming entrance patio in which there are always fair trade markets from different parts of the world.
    The stained glass windows and the interior are nice, not spectacular but with a great feeling of light
    Concerts of classical music and other alternative music are usually held, so it is a good opportunity to spend a pleasant afternoon there.

    I walked from Holborn station to see St. Clement Danes Church on my way to the St. Paul's Cathedral. Both of them were completed by Sir Christopher Wren.
    Really nice!

    Christopher Wren designed after the earlier church burned in the Great Fire of London. The first church was built over the The Temple of Mithras and moved across the street to its present location in 1430. It is a domed church and listed as one of the ten best churches in London.

    Disappointing because it stands between Westminster Abbey and the Houses of Parliament . It’s somewhat plain in appearance.
