Churches of London (A Guided Walk in London)
“Churches of London” is a very popular Guided Walk in the City of London devised and led by the well-known Blue Badge Guide Colin Crosby, of |Colin Crosby Heritage Tours.
These walks are an enjoyable way of learning some Local History.
The walk starts outside Fenchurch Street Station, in Fenchurch Place.
Most of the churches in the City were largely destroyed during the Great Fire in 1666, and rebuilt by the famous architect Christopher Wren.
This walk looks at many of the City’s huge collection of churches, as well as the sites of many that have long ago vanished.
Along the way, Colin leads the group through lots of the City’s little-known passageways, as well as some very famous thoroughfares.
Among the churches discussed are St. Olave Hart Street (Dickens’ St. Ghastly Grim), All Hallows Barking by the Tower, St. James Garlickhithe, St. Mary le Bow (within the sound of whose bells you must be born to be a true Cockney) and St. Botolph Aldgate.
Colin leads several other walks in London, including some looking at churches, such as “Faith in London” and “John Wesleys London”.
