The church was indeed spectacular and well maintained. There was a lot of activity and guides to assist. The stained windows were a delight and extremely colourful.

This is a beautiful peaceful church hidden in a quiet street. There is lots of information on the history of the Church during the Blitz. I also attended a lovely spiritual ceremony led by the priest.

The church is lovely and the people were very kind and welcoming. They have a very interesting exhibit about the history of the church, particularly the destruction and rebuilding during WWII.

We stayed opposite this church and enjoyed the views every day, its a real shame, reading from the history and that gardens were taken away and an ugly car park created instead. But inside is very impressive.
