City of London

St. Andrew Undershaft, City of London

This is one of the most attractive medieval churches to survive in the City of London. Much of the exterior dates to the 1500s and there were many embellishments during the early parts of Henry VIII's reign, particularly to the interior. Hans Holbein the Younger would have worshipped here during this period.

The Victorians did some rather drastic renovation, including moving the east window to the opposite end of the church. Unfortunately, this meant it was entirely destroyed by the IRA bomb in 1992 which exploded close to the outside of the church. It has been restored since that time and is still one of the most handsome churches in the City.
