"City Churches: St. Lawrence Jewry" Historical Tip by yooperprof
Historical, London: 219 reviews and 548 photos
Favorite thing: Baroque grandeur - a splendid Christopher Wren interior dating from the 1670s and early 1680s. It was heavily damaged by bombing during World War II, but carefully restored in the 1950s. This is the official church of the Corporation of the City of London - next door to the Guildhall - and no longer a functioning parish church. It's located on Gresham Street.
The name derives from its location close to the medieval Jewish ghetto. Later, during the Renaissance, Thomas More used to preach here before he became a Cardinal.
