Overview

From the earliest medieval remains to the handful of churches rebuilt after 1945, this pocket guide includes some of London's finest architecture

From the earliest medieval remains to the handful of churches rebuilt after 1945, this pocket guide includes some of London's finest architecture The sanctity of the church has prevented London's churches from being redeveloped or altered in any significant way, and so they remain historical islands while the environment around them has changed beyond recognition. This guide is packed with information about the history and architecture of these fascinating churches. For those wanting to walk in the footsteps of Wren, Pepys, and Shakespeare there are details of opening times, events such as concerts, and three church walks to follow.
