Brompton Oratory Easy to get to? Good for kids? Value for money? free Worth a visit? 203

The Brompton Oratory was the first Roman Catholic Church to be built in the capital since Henry VIII broke from papal authority in the 16th-century.

It was designed by Herbert Gribble in 1878 in Italian baroque style, and may have been based on the Gesu Church in Rome.

The interior decorations are truly sumptuous with statues, candles and imagery galore. Giuseppe Mazzuoli’s huge 17th-century statues of the apostles take pride of place in the nave, and lend another Italian link – they were originally housed in Sienna Cathedral.
