St Bartholomew the Great Church - founded as a priory in 1123 with a grand Norman interior

From Pagan times, to Roman London, through to the Reformation, religion has been an important and at times controversial part of daily life. As such, the city is filled with elegant buildings dedicated to worship, many with great historic significance, built by world-renowned architects, including Sir Christopher Wren, who rebuilt dozens of the city's churches after many were destroyed in the Great Fire of London. However, if you've seen more than two of London's churches you will realise that the buildings bear many similarities, as most are built using white stone, a method of prevention against further fire damage. So it is refreshing when you come across one of the rare churches that survived not only the fire, but the bombs of two world wars, and still stands today as a stunning example of 12th century architecture.

 

St Bartholomew the Great was built in 1123 as an Augustinian Priory in the Smithfield area of East London, close to Barbican. Since it was founded the church's original structure has been subsequently embellished with a mixture of later architectural styles, but the Norman crossing and choir are largely intact, offering a rare glimpse into ancient London. The church also contains Tudor architecture in the form of a half timbered house above the entranceway and much of the exterior was rebuilt during the late 19th century by Aston Webb, who created an ornate red brick design, with an unusual checkerboard pattern surrounding the doors and window frames. 

 

The church has paid host to some notable figures, including Benjamin Franklin, one of the founding fathers of the United States, who worked in the Lady Chapel as a journeyman printer when it was used for commercial purposes. William Hogarth, the renowned British artist and cartoonist was also baptised in the church. The church also has an elegant oriel window, which was allegedly used for spying on monks, to ensure they were behaving in an appropriately pious manner!

 

The church has been used as a location in the films Four Weddings and a Funeral, The Other Boleyn Girl, Shakespeare in Love, Sherlock Holmes and Elizabeth: The Golden Age, due to its authentic architecture and picturesque facade. It is also customary for most London churches to have a resident ghost and the spirit of a monk is said to haunt the church looking for his lost sandal.

 

The church is a fascinating place to explore during your London visit and Farringdon is one of London's most up and coming areas, with some fantastic gastro-pubs and the noise and bustle of Smithfield Market close by. The Barbican Arts Centre is just a short walk away from the church and Barbican tube station, from which you can explore many other parts of the city, making this a convenient and entertaining place to stay during your visit. Malmaison London is a boutique style hotel with ultra-stylish rooms and a fantastic brasserie. Citadines Apart Hotel offers reasonably priced, self-catering units for a home away from home feel. The Zetter Hotel offers chic rooms at low-cost rates and Andaz London is a quirky, design-led hotel with stunning rooms and a high-level of service.
