Welcome to London Churches in Photographs

Architects & Places

This site’s aim is to show pictures of the wealth of churches in London. It is a long-term project as there is somewhere over 1500 such buildings across the whole of Greater London.

As of 16 December 2017, there are 1185 churches included.

Most are Church of England, Roman Catholic or Orthodox but there are also some that have passed to other groups or into non-religious use.

Many churches are kept locked and for those, there are only exterior shots. Where possible there is a selection of internal shots to try to give a flavour of the building.  Each posting also has some basic information about the church and its architecture.

The map of Greater London shows which areas of London have coverage in this ongoing project.

From December 2017 I am visiting churches in the London Borough of Hounslow.

I would like to acknowledge and thank incumbents, church wardens, PCCs, church watchers, administrators and key holders who offer access to many of the buildings outside service times.

Each page allows comments to be made, these will come to me first for moderation, so if you want to ask me a question please use the comment box and I will reply directly.
