Free guided tours of the church are available most days from 2-4pm between April and October. These short highlight tours present the ideal opportunity to hear first hand about the church’s long and fascinating history

Groups

Heritage Tours for groups are available by arrangement throughout the year. These last approx one hour and must be pre-booked, and there is a charge of £5 per person. Please contact the church office (020 7481 2928 or email parish@ahbtt.org.uk) for details. Self guided groups are welcome to look around the church, but please ensure you book with the church office before your visit as it may not always be convenient for you to come at the time you would wish.

School Visits

All Hallows is home to a highly successful series of Arts in Education programmes for London primary schools, staged in partnership with Clios Company, who specialise in site-specific theatre in education. The November project, “Ultima Britannia”, focuses on life in Roman London during the first century, and our Spring programme “Lundenwic” focuses on the Anglo Saxons.

Amenities

    The Crypt Museum leads you on a fascinating journey through time, beginning with the Roman tessellated floor of a domestic house from the late 2nd Century and charting the history of the church, its people and the City of London. The museum is in part of the original Saxon church and contains Roman and Saxon artefacts, church plate and ancient registers recording the baptism of William Penn and the marriage of John Quincy-Adams.

    The Byward Kitchen and Bar is located in the church centre, offering traditional British food in a relaxing setting. Get away from the London hustle in a lovely quiet garden setting or come inside and experience the relaxed ambience and modern decor. Go to http://www.bywardkitchenandbar.com/ for more details.

Facilities for disabled

    The church and cafe have disabled access and toilets, but there is currently no access to the museum and undercroft chapels in the crypt.
