All Hallows by the Tower

As the oldest church in the City of London, All Hallows by the Tower brings centuries of history to life. The building has transformed over the years and each generation has left their legacy in the church. Amongst its unexpected treasures are a Roman pavement, a Saxon arch and the baptismal record of an American president, each with its own story to tell. But as well as being a site of historic importance, All Hallows is a place of prayer and worship: join in with one of their services throughout the week, come and take a quiet moment in one of the chapels or simply light a candle.

Head downstairs to the Crypt Museum to go on a journey through time. Discover Roman and Saxon artefacts, including a piece of Roman floor, as well as ancient registers dating back to the 16th century, and many more fascinating items.

Every weekday morning and afternoon, a fantastic team of volunteers are available to provide tours or answer questions about the church. You can also book a guided group tour on their website.
