“Surprise”

Church of St James the Less
Ranked #1,529 of 1,828 things to do in London
Reviewed 19 March 2017

I thought this was a very exciting find. Although it predates the Arts and Craft movement by 20 years the interior is very suggestive of it. I loved the use of coloured marble.

There a several churches in Pimlico (the sign says Westminster so I guess it's on the boarder between the two areas), though most are in the Gothic style so the church of St James the Less is a bit different as it is in the Victorian style, much like the buildings which surround it and is Church of England. The church doesn't stand out as much as the others due to it being tucked away among flats so might be a bit tricky to find at first but worth a look if you're in Pimlico and on the Vauxhall Bridge Road.

This is a very attractive Victorian church in Pimlico, London. It is a little bit hidden away but very attractive on the outside. Inside it is even better....the multi coloured tiling is quite striking and the stained glass windows a delight.Don't miss the clourful fresco by G.F. Watts and the sculpted capitals of biblical scenes on the pillars.
