Which London churches include great restaurants? Which featured in the plays of Shakespeare? Which pulpit has Jeffrey Archer stood in and where can you find Dick Whittington’s tomb?
This fully illustrated guide to the capital’s most beautiful, interesting and significant churches includes colour photography throughout and fascinating commentary that extends beyond architectural detail to include historical gossip, special features to look for, famous associations and what goes on in these remarkable buildings today.
Covering every part of Greater London, there are many hidden gems waiting to be discovered and many churches that are already well established on the tourist map are also included. Church tourism is increasingly popular and this book will appeal both to visitors to London and the capital’s residents. All the churches included are kept open.
