Where can you see scorch marks from the Great Fire, find the carved initials of Christopher Wren or marvel at a Henry Moore altar? London's City churches offer some of the most perfectly realised church architecture in the world. From St Botolph's in the east to St Dunstan's in the west, these historic buildings define the boundaries of the old city of London, which dates from Roman times. The City churches have defied bombs, city planners and modern secularism to endure, not only as places of worship, but as living monuments to the genius of architects such as Wren and Hawksmoor and master craftsmen such as Grinling Gibbons. This guide is packed with information about the history and architecture of these fascinating churches and for those wanting to walk in the footsteps of Wren, Pepys and Shakespeare there are details of opening times, church events as well as three detailed City walks. Over 100 photographs and four maps are included to help you enjoy exploring London's City churches.
