All Hallows-by-the-Tower

A medieval church partially rebuilt in the 17th century but escaping serious damage in the Great Fire which was observed by Pepys from its tower.. Not so lucky in the Second World War when it suffered bomb damage but was subsequently beautifully restored. The interior is entirely post-war, an interpretation of the late Gothic style.

http://www.london-city-churches.org.uk/Churches/AllHallowsbytheTower/index.html

Always open and always busy! Firmly on the tourist trail and feeling like something that is part church and part museum.

Opening Times: Mon – Fri: 9am-6pm, Sat & Sun: 10am-5pm

Nearest stations: Tower Hill and London Fenchurch

Bevis Marks Synagogue

Bevis Marks Synagogue, officially Qahal Kadosh Sha’ar ha-Shamayim (Hebrew: קהל קדוש שער השמים‬, “Holy Congregation Gate of Heaven”), is the oldest synagogue in continuous use. It is located off Bevis Marks, in the City of London. The synagogue was built in 1701 and is affiliated to London’s historic Spanish and Portuguese jewish community. It is a Grade I listed building It is the only synagogue in Europe which has held regular services continuously for more than 300 years.

The Friends of the City Churches publish the following opening times:

Opening TimesMon, Tue, Wed, Fri: 11am – 1pm Sun: 11am-12.30pm

I have often found it closed to visitors at this time. It is open during Open House London weekend where talks are given explaining the history of the building.

Nearest stations: Aldgate, Liverpool St and London Fenchurch,

City Temple, London

The City Temple is a nonconformist church on Holborn Viaduct in London. It is the only English Free Church still worshipping in its own building every Sunday in the City of London. The current Minister is Rev Dr Rodney Woods.

Bit hit and miss this one, but it does seem to be open fairly often during the week.

Nearest stations: Chancery Lane, Barbican and St Pauls.

St Andrew-by-the-Wardrobe

The name comes from the King’s Wardrobe established in the mid-14th century near behind it, where the King’s ceremonial robes and other valuable possessions were stored. The church on the site was destroyed in the Great Fire and rebuilt by Wren as his last church commission in 1685-95. Seriously bomb-damaged in the Second World War it was rebuilt within the original walls and re-opened in 1961.The furnishings were assembled from various other City churches no longer existing.

http://www.london-city-churches.org.uk/Churches/StAndrewbytheWardrobe/index.html

Opening Times: Mon to Fri 10am-4pm with Friends’ Watchers present. Always open during Open House London weekend.

Nearest stations: Blackfriars and City Thameslink.

St Andrew Undershaft

St Andrew Undershaft is a Church of England church in the City of London, the historic nucleus and modern financial centre of London. It is located on St Mary Axe, within the Aldgate ward, and is a rare example of a City church that survived both the Great Fire of London and the Blitz.Wikipedia

Another one that can prove difficult to visit. It has been open during London Open House weekend. Friends of the City Churches recommend you arrange a visit via the office at St Helens:

Telephone: 020 7283 2231

Nearest stations: Liverpool St., Aldgate and Monument.

St Anne and St Agnes

St Anne and St Agnes is a church located at Gresham Street in the City of London, near the Barbican. While St Anne’s is an Anglican foundation, from 1966 to 2013 it was let to a congregation of the Lutheran Church in Great Britain. Wikipedia

Can prove to be a difficult church to visit. I have been twice and only got in to have a nose around thanks to a break in the music recital. The Friends of the City Churches recommend that you check with the church first:

Telephone: 020 7796 0149

Nearest stations: St Pauls and Barbican.
