    My favourite part was the upstairs gallery, so interesting and full of surprises
    Only downside was although obviously disabled we were not told there was a lift so struggled up many stairs
    The Abbey was beautiful, interesting, amazing

    Saw the temple on social media and decided to visit. Walked from Wembley Park station (about 25 mins) and walked down a local residential road towards the temple. From afar you can see the higher delicacies of the temple as you walk towards it. Once you do get to see it upfront, it is incredibly stunning and every detail is immaculate. We were unsure of how to get in (we’re not of the Hindu faith and this was not a local temple) so we felt a little awkward on making the first move. Luckily we saw Rashika and her lovely husband (both devotees at the temple) who gave us a lovely introduction to the history of the temple, it’s meaning and purpose and an understanding of what we would be going to see when we go in. It was a lovely conversation and incredibly welcoming. Made us feel very comfortable. The deities were not on show as they were “sleeping” because we arrived a little later in the day. If we came in the morning, we could have seen the morning ritual. We saw the insides of the temple instead which was still stunning regardless. Very well managed area. High-security (almost airport like) and you can’t take in your own water or a large bag. There is a small building opposite to leave your belongings and the temple staff take care of it accordingly. Was a very smooth process getting in however. Shoes off, of course when you do go inside. There is a dedicated shoes rack for both men and women. There is a gift and souvenir shop as well which is nice if you’d like to buy items handcrafted from India itself.

    This is review for the excellent Cathedral cafe which is based downstairs in the crypt of the cathedral. If you are nearby to the cathedral this is an excellent place to visit for lovely home made food, coffee, cakes and lots of other light snacks. The cafe is run by a lovely couple who are super friendly and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble for them.
    The amazing food is also very reasonably priced and is a real option to eat around Victoria or if you are attending services at the Cathedral. Make sure you look out for the sign for the cafe when you go into the cathedral, most people do not realise there is cafe in Westminster Cathedral…..great place to enjoy your lunch.

    The Southwark Cathedral (which will always be Southwerk Cathedral to me) is a good church for a visit.


    Southwerk is the oldest church in England.

    I enjoyed the sight of three things: the giant altar screen with all its statues, the statue of Wm Shaksper in the tranquility of the garden, and the happy face of Satan consuming Judas. I was not impressed with the monument to Shaksper which is a relatively modern creation.

    There is a £4 suggested donation and, if I recall, a small fee for photography.

    The oldest Church in London FREE to Visit.
    More than 800 years of history. This church is survived the great fire 1666, WW1 and WW2.

    It is hidden in the oldest areas in London and it is lovely. FREE entrance. If you like old London, wander around in the streets around the church to see the oldest buildings and pubs in London. Also, it looks like a Harry Potter movie set.

    Not lots of tourist in this area. But lots of history lovers around!

    You may well be tempted to give this church the miss, as you walk down Piccadilly on you way to other more significant attractions. And you may not even spot it at all, as it’s tucked away behind a little street market, the market stalls somewhat obscuring its presence. It’s certainly not one of London’s grandest or largest churches (and there are many of those), but it is quite historically significant, and for that reason alone worth a visit. The church was designed and built by Britain’s most highly acclaimed architect, Sir Christopher Wren. It’s one of some 50 churches he was responsible for, after the Great Fire of London in 1666. St James Piccadilly was consecrated in 1684. It suffered bomb damage in the first phase of the Blitz in 1940, and was fully restored.

    The exterior is quite plain - a red brick structure trimmed with Portland stone. But step inside and you will find and extremely aesthetically pleasing interior, with graceful arches and curves that are balanced and symmetrical. Galleries are supported by square pillars, which continue up as Corinthian columns to the ceiling. The main arched ceiling is tastefully and simply trimmed to create a really elegant and light interior. I thought it quite beautiful, and pleased I stopped by. There are many notable memorials and burials in the church.

    It’s a community church with and outreach to a wide range of minority groups, including the LGBT community, and those seeking asylum. It also has a schedule of concerts, and has hosted some notable contemporary musicians in the past.

    It’s worth a visit!

    I walked from Holborn station to see St. Clement Danes Church on my way to the St. Paul's Cathedral. Both of them were completed by Sir Christopher Wren.
    Really nice!

    Christopher Wren designed after the earlier church burned in the Great Fire of London. The first church was built over the The Temple of Mithras and moved across the street to its present location in 1430. It is a domed church and listed as one of the ten best churches in London.

    Dropped in early evening just because I noticed the impressive brick facade from the entrance to my hotel across the churchyard by the Bedford Street gate. Impressive but relaxed interior when lit. Several younger people wandering in and out. Notices on the board suggest a lot of community activity. Interesting to learn the context and application of the Actors Church link.

    This is the other end of the church on the west side of the Covent Garden piazza where more often than not you will see jugglers, fire eaters, clowns, acrobats etc performing against the backdrop of the church which in that side has a grand stone portico and classical pillars.
