St Augustine, Queens Gate, South Kensington

One of William Butterfield’s classic high Victorian designs. Built 1870-77, the striking interior decoration was largely reinstated in 1975, having been whitwashed over. The huge reredos is by Martin Travers from 1928 as are the Stations of the Cross.

All Saints, Margaret Street

One of the most famous 19th century churches in Britain. It was designed by William Butterfield and built 1850-59. The interior is an ideal of the mid-Victorian Anglo catholic parish church. It sits on a very restricted site just behind the east end of Oxford Street.

St Paul, Covent Garden

The first classical church in London built by Inigo Jones 1631-38, but rebuilt after fire by Thomas Hardwick 1795-98, with 19th century restoration by Butterfield in 1871-1872a and Henry Clutton in 1878-1882. Its east end is the backdrop to the Covent garden piazza. Known as “The actor’s church”, there are many, mainly 20th century memorials to well known actors.
