This review is about the cafe which is in the basement of this wonderful Cathedral. As you walk down the steps to the cafe it is easy to be enveloped by the peace and tranquilty as you hear the beautiful classical music playing which is...More

This famous old cathedral is a little hard to find but it is just a couple blocks from the Victoria train station or underground station. It is what we were told to call the layer cake kind of architecture. Inside are some of the most...More
I was a regular visitor here when I was a student in London in the 80s but Mrs S had never visited. We took the train into London Victoria and made the short walk up Victoria Street to the cathedral.

It is an awe inspiring cathedral. We went on a weekday afternoon, and walked right in. each chapel surrounding the main sanctuary was as impressive as the next. Well worth the trip to see, and nowhere near as crowded as Westminster Abbey. The Cathedral is...More

This is the major Catholic church in the country and you can tell by the splendour of the chapels. Some truly beautiful artifacts and so much gold leaf. Unlike the Abbey it's free to look round. Not a great fan of the outside apart from...More
This was an interesting church because the contrast between the Catholic Cathedral and Westminster Abbey several blocks away was quite striking. The cathedral is byzantine/Romanesque with several beautiful and striking mosaics inside.
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are
highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.

Hi there. Midnight Mass actually starts a little earlier than the title of the Service suggests. The time may vary but usually about 10:30am for Carols. Although the doors close to allow for preparations to take place the queue outside can start from as early as 5/6pm. This means there is absolutely no guarantee of a seat at 10pm (especially when the Carols start shortly after that time). However that doesn't mean you shouldn't come along on the evening. It will be full; just be aware of that fact. You may be lucky and get a seat though and I hope you enjoy your visit if you decide to come along.
