Temple Church, City of London, ***

There was a funeral going on inside which was being carefully protected from the tourists. But I had a chance to admire the Norman carving and fine restoration work on the west door.

St Stephen Walbrook, City of London, ****

“This is regarded as Wren’s most brilliant City church. Like Baroque churches in Rome, the structure is constrained by a small site and the need to squeeze formal classical proportions into the dimensions of a medieval city…The interior is one of London’s most perfect spaces, marrying Roman dome, possibly the first in England, to a traditional Protestant preaching house.”
