November Outing to St Bartholomew the Great

On Tuesday 19 November we are going to St Bartholomew the Great in Smithfield. Meet at 11 am. This is one of London's oldest churches and dates back to Norman times, though reconstructed in the nineteenth century. We enjoyed our last visit there a few years ago. It is also very near to the Charterhouse where we went in October.

It should be reasonably warm inside, there are loos, and although the cafe is closed we are welcome to eat a picnic in the cloisters, there are plenty of take away sandwiches bars nearby for anyone who does not want to bring a packed lunch. Or we can go out!

There is a £5 entry charge for non-worshippers, and if we do go out at lunchtime, please mention this to the person at the desk, so you do not have to pay again if you come back.

They are expecting us.

St Bartholomew the Great, Cloth Fair, London EC1A 7JP
