Amazing place to visit. It is church of St Mary Abchurch, a medieval church that dates back to the twelfth century and is dedicated to Virgin Mary. Place is full of history and stunning art work.
Popped into the church during my lunch break today. I was met by a member of the Friends of the City Churches who gave me a very informative talk on its history. Stunning dome and interior by Grinling Gibbons. Well worth a visit.

The place is very quite and warm. It has a 1:00pm mass during the weekdays which is good for working faithful Catholics. The entrance is not that noticeable as it is facing parallel with the road, new to the place won’t find it easily but just looked to the left and you will find the small door which lead to narrow hallway. Very solemn place of worship.
The history of this old church (the oldest Catholic church in England?) is palpable. A place of peace and beauty. Was particularly happy to see Irish saint, Naomh Brighid, St. Bridget, in a stained glass pane. You can buy a nicely illustrated history guide of the church for a fiver. There was no-one there while we visited. Don't be shy! It's actually a relief to be alone in peace in the centre of London.
