We were strolling the neighborhoods off of Brick Lane and ran into this beautiful Anglican church built in the early 1700s. We didn't go in but it looks like it is used as a music venue. Worth the detour if you are nearby!

This is probably the most iconic and beautiful building in the Spitalfields area, a beautiful design by Hawksmoor. Unfortunately, the church was closed when we tried to visit in the break between Christmas and New Year, so seeing the interior will have to wait for...More

We've been going here for a while now. It's a spectacular building, and has a great cafe too. The highlight by far is the 5pm Sunday service they run. Great music, friendly people, and free food and drinks. Hope you'll love it as much as...More

Beautifully austere or sever exterior, with an amazing...More

This is a very fine church which is worth a visit if you are in the area. There is a cafe in the crypt. It is a deceptively large church with balconies. A fine example of the architecture of Hawksmoor.

This church is close to 3 centuries old and is a standout in Spitalfields. Not a big Church compared to several other churches in London but worth a visit given its history.

It is great to see this Nicolas Hawskmoor masterpiece which had fallen in the 1960s into virtual dereliction fully restored to its former glory. I had for many years attended concerts as part of the Spitalfields festival as the church was reconstructed all around. It...More
