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

Following the Great Fire of London Christopher Wren rebuilt fifty one 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 on the inside (mainly due to The Blitz). Six more exist as towers only, and a couple have been demolished and their stones re-used elsewhere.

This tour will include a selection of the best churches, including the famous 'cockney church' of St Mary-le-Bow. If you want to call yourself a true cockney then you're supposed to have been born within the sound of its bell. Craig has written a review of St. Mary-le-Bow if you'd like to see what looks like inside.

The tour will also stop at St Michael Paternoster Royal, the local church of Dick Whittington. The famous medieval Mayor is said to have been buried within its grounds, and they've installed a giant stained glass window to celebrate the association. Craig has written a review of St Michael Paternoster Royal as well, if you'd like to get a quick preview.

Important note: The tour doesn't actually go inside St. Paul's Cathedral, they just walk and talk outside it. If you'd like to see what it's actually like inside, then read Craig's review of St. Paul's on his blog. You might like to look through our special section on London's churches as well.
