St Botolph without Aldgate

Address: Aldgate, EC3N 1AB
Telephone: 020 7283 1670
Usual opening times: Mon to Fri 9.30am-3pm
Description: Dedication indicates a Saxon origin, as for other churches with the same name. The present building is by Dance the Elder, built 1741-4. Internal redecoration by Bentley in 1888-95 has resulted in an impression of light and openness which is unusual in a City church. Particularly notable is his ceiling and coving, the latter boasting lithe standing angels in high relief holding shields of arms – a unique treatment in the City and probably anywhere. A busy parish church with a ready welcome.
