Virtual TOUR – The Saints and the City of London walking tour
In which Church can you literally see the name of God?
What is a worshipful company?
Which saint had a chapel on a bridge?
The names of saints adorn the City of London. Veneration of saints filled a gap: saints days replaced many pagan festivals that were previously celebrated. Our virtual tour will use a variety of saints to access the City of London. This is a City of London highlights tour with a difference, let the saints guide us.
Once you have experienced your tour you will be able to say you have seen:
A typical Wren Church
The oldest Parish Church in the City
Relics of the religious orders of Bishopsgate and Blackfriars
And so much more!
Factoid- It took 33 years to build the first stone London Bridge, and unfortunately the priest-architect Peter de Colechurch died before it was completed. Colechurch was buried in a cavity under the Chapel he built upon the bridge.
