Saint Andrew by the Wardrobe
Competing for possibly the most unusual church name in England’s capital, the church of Saint Andrew by the Wardrobe is tucked away down a cobbled side street between Blackfriars station and Saint Paul’s cathedral (very close to the international Youth Hostel) and is a gem of a London church.
Designed by Wren, the church was burnt down in the Great Fire of London and bombed in the Blitz but has been reconstructed within the original walls and now hosts lunchtime concerts and regular worship using the older Book of Common Prayer.
The church also has a connection with Shakespeare who lived for a time in the parish.
If you’re visiting Saint Pauls, staying at the Youth Hostel or travelling through Blackfriars then I recommend it as a detour to sample a true bit of “hidden” London. [more]
