"Visit St Bartholomew's - the..." St. Bartholemew the Great Church Tip by ChrsStrl


Visit St Bartholomew's - the Church, not the hospital unless you like those places!
Founded in 1123 by Rahere (see next tip for details of his tomb). The current building is only the size of the chancel of the original building. There is an original 13th C gateway. The 15th C font, one of the oldest in the City, was used at Hogarth's baptism.

Address: Smithfield. Nearest tube - Barbican/ St Paul's
Directions: Nearest Tube, Barbican. Near Bartholomew Passage
