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!

The church is on a traffic island very near to Somerset House. It was first built in 1222 but was pulled down to make way for building of Somerset House. A new church was built 1714 and consecrated in 1723. It is well known for being the church where Charles Dickens' parents were married. When we visited the vicar allowed us to look around and my daughter was allowed to ring the bells. Definitely worth visiting this church if you are in the area.
