Off the beaten track: St. Bride's Church

I love living in London and almost on a daily basis I discover something new about the city. When I first moved here, my friend Ben was a great guide and would take me to loads of fun lunch time walks around our office near Farringdon. During one such walk I came across St. Bride's Church on Fleet Street, and as usual Ben had loads of fun facts to tell me. Apparently the church's architecture which was designed by Sir Christopher Wren (who also designed St. Paul's Cathedral) in 1672 was the inspiration behind the modern day multi tiered Wedding cake. I always thought I'll go back and photograph it and so a few weeks back I did just that.

It was quite hard to take proper pictures of the church because it now surrounded by a loads of tall buildings now. I might try again from the South bank of the Thames some time in the future.
