This beautiful church, built by Inigo jones, in the busy West End of London has been here since 1633.

A wide view of the east end of the church. In the centre is the altar and surround, on each side there are stained glass windows and chapels.


St Paul's is the Parish Church of Covent Garden and therefore as well as worshipping on Sunday also provides various pastoral support.


St Paul's Church is an ideal place to hold an event or fundraiser. With our award-winning gardens we can cater to a number of unique events.
