This enjoyable walk will take around some of Sir Christopher Wren's finest City churches.

After the Great Fire of London gutted the city he rebuilt fifty one parish churches, plus St. Paul's Cathedral. Only thirteen of them survive to this day in their original form, and eleven more have been substantially altered (mainly due to The Blitz). There are six more where only the tower remains standing, and a couple more which have had their stones re-used elsewhere.

The tour will include a selection of these churches, including St Mary-le-Bow and St Michael Paternoster Royal (Dick Whittington's church).

Important note: The tour doesn't actually go inside St. Paul's Cathedral, it just starts outside it. If you'd like to read a review of what it's actually like inside, then check out Craig's London Blog. We've got a big section with descriptions of London's churches in our city guide.
