Favorite thing: An outstanding baroque Church in Westminster, St Mary le Strand sits in the middle of one of London's busiest thoroughfares. It was built between 1714-1717 and was designed by James Gibbs, the classically (Italian) trained architect also responsible for St. Martin-in-the-Fields in Trafalgar Sq., and for the Radcliffe Camera in Oxford. A beautifully rich and warm interior. St Mary-le-Strand was damaged during the 1940 Blitz, but not irreparably.
