This is a surprisingly large church that contains the ashes of Sir Henry Wood (Prom concerts) within a musicians chapel. There is also a Regimental Chapel for the Royal Fusiliers as well as some lovely stained glass and an impressive organ.

Inner London’s busiest streets crisscross quiet
cobbled lanes for an effect that can be urbane or
quaint – or an intriguing blend of both – depending on
the particular corner you turn. Due to its especially
convenient location, bustling Holborn hosts an
excellent range of hotels, eateries, and shops to suit
practically any taste or budget. With major
attractions like the British Museum and Somerset House
