​Discover this beautiful Wren church and its connections with the City of London

St Lawrence Jewry is the municipal church of the City of London Corporation and a fine example of Christopher Wren's work.

A church has sat on this site since at least the twelfth century. The current church was one of Wren's most impressive and expensive rebuilds following the Great Fire of London. Though heavily damaged in 1940 in the Blitz, St Lawrence Jewry was rebuilt to Wren's original plans.

Music, events and more...

St Lawrence Jewry regularly hosts a variety of concerts, exhibitions and even special ceremonies involving the Lord Mayor. More information is available on the Church website.

St Lawrence Jewry

​The church's distinctive name comes from its location near the old Great Synagogue – Jewry was the ideal addition to distinguish St Lawrence from its namesakes. The interior of the church is particularly fine, with stunning glass windows and a classic interior of white walls and dark wood that grandly represent Wren's original vision.
