"St Martin in the Fields" St. Martin-in-the-Fields Tip by easyoar
St. Martin-in-the-Fields, London: 42 reviews and 81 photos
Just from the name of this Church, you get the idea that it must be rather old - there haven't been any fields around Trafalgar Square (which is where St Martin in the Fields) is situated for a good long time! In fact a church has been on the current site since the 13th Century. However the current building was only built in 1726.
The architecture has had huge influence, especially in the USA, where it became THE model for colonial churches. Unusually there is a Royal Box inside the church, where royalty could sit rather undisturbed.
The crypt was used as a shelter for homeless soldiers around 1920 and was used as an Air Raid Shelter in the Second World War.
Address: Trafalgar Square, WC2
