Forget the architecture, forget the religion (I myself am an atheist), Go for the music. As it should for a Church with a particular dedication to musicians. Sir Henry Wood is buried here apparently.

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
as well as popular areas such as Covent Garden and Soho all just a short walk away, Holborn is a smart base from which to explore London.
