St. Martin-in-the-Fields Tours

St. Martin-in-the-Fields
St. Martin-in-the-Fields has been a feature on a London map for almost 800 years. The current neoclassical structure was designed by architect James Gibbs in 1721 and boasts Grade-I heritage status. The Anglican church is noted for its charitable work, which is funded in part by its popular crypt café, live concerts, and special exhibitions.

The Basics
Once located on London’s rural outskirts, the church is now a central landmark in the ever-growing city, making it an ideal stop on a walking tour. Admire the building’s classic Georgian facade as you stroll between attractions, taking advantage of Super Saver deals to combine your visit with other city highlights. Alternatively, attend one of the church’s concerts or services for an immersive experience, or embark on a free self-guided tour for more-intimate insight.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • St. Martin-in-the-Fields is popular with worshippers from all over the world.
  • Interactive exhibits, such as brass-rubbing classes, are ideal for keeping kids entertained.
  • Most of the church is accessible for visitors with disabilities, though it’s worth calling ahead to check specific arrangements.

How to Get There
Located on Trafalgar Square’s northeast corner, St. Martin-in-the-Fields is easily accessible from Charing Cross and Leicester Square stations. Several buses serve Trafalgar Square, with stops on Duncannon Street and Charing Cross Road just seconds away from the church.

When to Get There
St. Martin-in-the-Fields is an active place of worship and hosts regular services every day except Friday, including Sunday sermons in Mandarin and Cantonese. Visitors are welcome to attend services, but if you’d rather skip the crowds, it’s best to avoid these times.

Influential Architecture
Visitors from the US may be familiar with some of the church’s features, as James Gibbs’ 18th-century design was highly influential in the construction of many Anglican buildings throughout the former British colonies. In turn, Gibbs himself was profoundly influenced by the work of his predecessor, Sir Christopher Wren. Take a stroll to nearby St. James’s Church, Piccadilly, for a closer look at Gibbs’ architectural inspiration.

A Lavatorial Audio Walk: Explore the UK's dynamic world of Public Toilets

Have you ever stopped to think about a simple question and found the answer to be much more complex than you ever could have imagined? And that that answer leads to yet more questions? This was precisely Rachel Erickson's situation when she moved to London. She was a drama student, a tourist, and a person who needed to do what we all must and use a toilet. But the toilet door was barred by a 30p entry charge. Avoiding this, she began to learn the workarounds and secret free toilets in London. One day she started to wonder about the politics of paying to pee. Where does the money go? Why is it free in some places and not others? Should it be a human right? New avenues opened up and she found herself plunged into a whole new world. She became the Loo Lady and toilets became her life. Today she's going to take you on a journey into the surprisingly dynamic world of the British Public Toilet. This tour takes you past some of London's most iconic views with a new twist.
