  • Step 1: Welcome to this incredible Central London adventure walk! When Sir Christopher Wren was 33, the Great Fire of London of 1666 destroyed much of the city. His office was commissioned to replace 51 churches and St Paul’s Cathedral.

  • Step 2: As far as we can tell, there around 30 surviving in some form to this day. On this route, we’ll attempt to visit all of them! It’s a challenge walk - there’s lots to see and discover along the way.

  • Step 3: We highly recommend walking on a weekday during business hours, if you can, as many of the churches are open and staffed by volunteers eager to answer questions and show you around.
