A tour of Wren's churches

After the Great Fire of London, Sir Christopher Wren (1632-1723) rebuilt 51 churches. On this guided tour, led by an expert City of London of Guide, you’ll see several of his finest places of worship. Judge for yourself which is the finest!

Among the Wren churches you’ll see on this walk are:

His masterpiece: St Paul’s Cathedral (note: we won’t be going in but why not visit it before or after the walk?)
St Nicholas Cole Abbey, with its distinctive galleon weathervane and excellent cafe
The spires of St Vedast Foster Lane and Christ Church Newgate Street
St Mary-le-Bow, where you’ll learn about the origins of a London cockney and a strong connection to the United States
St Mary Aldermary, an unusual gothic-style church with a stunning plasterwork ceiling
St James Garlickhythe, known as ‘Wren’s Lantern’
St Michael Paternoster Royal, associated with Dick Whittington
St Stephen Walbook, with its impressive dome and stunning Henry Moore font

The walk ends near Bank Station and lasts a little under 2 hours.

Cost: £10
