St James's Church (St James's)
This large Christopher Wren church was built 1676-84 to serve the then fashionable and newly developed of St James's Square and its environs. Built in red brick with stone dressing, featuring a square tower and compact spire - a copy in fibre glass of the original destroyed in World War II; the light and airy interior has a decorated barrel vault, galleries, a marble font, reredos and organ case by Grinling Gibbons. The organ built originally for Whitehall Palace, was a gift of Mary II.
William Blake was baptised here in 1757, St James's is now a fashionable West End venue for weddings. The churchyard is a garden of remembrance dedicated to Londoners' courage in World War II.
