Overview

Although there has been a place of worship here for over 1000 years, the current church was built in 1872 in Victorian Gothic Style and includes a healing window which was funded by the Royal College of Surgeons. As well as providing a place of sanctuary it has weekly organ recitals and concerts. St. Mary Abbots has the tallest spire in London, making it one of the rare churches that has ten bells. No surprise, then, that St. Mary's is a popular center for bell ringing. Both experienced ringers and those with no experience are welcome to come and ring the bells.
