St Margaret’s Church in Westminster, London – One of London’s Hidden Gems

Have you ever wondered about the church next to Westminster Abbey? Since 1614 St Margaret’s Church has been the parish church of the House of Commons; somewhat overshadowed by the Abbey and often overlooked by visitors to London. With free entry, a number of fascinating memorials, a stained glass window with quite a history, and some lovely Tudor features, this is a must; especially for those who enjoy exploring churches and their histories. In her quest for all that is little known in London, Sarah recently found St Margaret’s quite by chance and is adding it to her list of things to do in the capital city.
