SUNDAY – 10:00am to 1:00pm (High Mass at 11:00am)

TUESDAY – FRIDAY  10:00am to 4:00pm (Low Mass (said) at 12:30pm

High Mass is normally live-streamed every Sunday.

St Magnus the Martyr church stands at the head of the old London Bridge in the City of London. It was Sir Christopher Wren’s most expensive parish church and the first to be visited by all those crossing into the City.

A beacon of the Anglo-Catholic tradition, we are open for daily prayer and celebrate a rich and musical High Mass each Sunday.

We welcome visitors from around the world to

  • marvel at the beautiful interior
  • see our world-famous 4 metre model of the old London Bridge
  • hear the music from our wonderful choir and organ
  • listen to our celebrated ring of 12 bells
  • set aside daily concerns and spend a time of peace and prayer.

The Fraternity

A Fraternity was founded in 1343 for the purpose of singing the hymn Salve Regina – a practice that was repeated in a number of other churches of medieval London.
