A few months ago, I read
about a Café in a Church,
and thought how great it would be to visit.
So when the opportunity arose to visit London
to see my great friend Jennifer,
I asked her if she fancied going
to see it. Of course she did !!
I emailed the people, found out where it was,
went to visit and that is where our day started.
Host is a coffee shop inside
a beautiful, historic church in Watling Street.
This is not your typical church café, however.
As well as providing a quiet, reflective space within the busy city,
Host provides suprisingly high quality coffee and food.
The Guild Church of St Mary Aldermary is an Anglican church located
in Watling Street at the junction with Bow Lane, in the City of London.
Of medieval origin, it was rebuilt from 1510. Badly damaged in the Great Fire of London in 1666, it was rebuilt once more, this time by Sir Christopher Wren, unlike the vast majority of his City churches in a Gothic style.

about the history of the church)
An amazing place and people are lovely.
There also is a small market of food stalls outside the church on weekdays
This is part one of our walk , as we picked up a map
Friends of the Church and went walking.
