Attraction details
Reviewed 13 May 2018

St Mary le Strand is a Church of England church at the eastern end of the Strand in the City of Westminster, London & dates back to January 1723
St Mary Le Strand is effectively situated on a traffic island which makes it very unique.
The nearest tube station is Temple.
A very pretty little church in a unique busy location.
Worth stopping to take a look at if you are in the area.

This church in the middle of a busy London street has a very pretty interior. Lovely blue stained glass, great ceiling and intriguing pictures of Charles 1 and his Queen propped behind the ornate font. It is often locked up so try going to a service or just after.

This is a pretty church and a striking statue of Gladstone outside. Right on the Strand and opposite the Australian Embassy (Australia House). A great example of a church in this wonderful city.

This is a lovely little church we stumbled upon on our way to watch "Mamma Mia" in the nearby Novello theater.
While the church was already closed while we visited, the lights from within it made the windows look particularly beautiful.

While visiting London, it is not unusual to find churches located in some interesting locations. St. Mary le Strand is one such church. It is located in the middle of a busy roadway in the Strand, opposite the Strand Building.
It is an elegant small church featuring charming external architecture. At the time of our most recent visit, it was not open to the public. Therefore, we just had to make do with viewing and photographing the church from the outside.
Worthy of a brief viewing if you happen to be in the area!
