About this church
No doubt Wren planned this dramatic effect when he reconstructed the previous medieval church, destroyed by the Great Fire, between 1677 and 1684.
Notable woodwork includes the original reredos, communion table, communion rails and pulpit. There are also bread shelves, on which wealthier worshippers would place bread for the poor of the parish to collect.
The simplicity of the interior with its vibrant stained-glass windows and impressive organ comes to life when the large central brass chandelier is lit with real candles. This signature piece was brought from St Vincent Cathedral in the West Indies in 1777.
The font under the organ gallery is inscribed with a Greek palindrome: NIYON ANOMHMA MH MONAN OYIN ('cleanse my sin not only my face').
The building sustained the least damage of all City churches during World War II.
There is a 360 tour of the church
