St. Paul's, the Actor's Church

St Paul’s in Covent Garden is affectionately known as "The Actors' Church" because of its long association with the theatre community.

There is an attractive churchyard where people can rest and find some peace and quiet in what can be a stressful and busy part of the city.

The artist J.M.W. Turner and dramatist W. S. Gilbert (of Gilbert & Sullivan fame), were both baptised at St Paul's. Among those buried at St Paul's are Samuel Butler, Grinling Gibbons, Sir Peter Lely and Thomas Arne (composer of "Rule Britannia").

As well as being an important focal point of the Covent Garden community, St Paul’s Covent Garden hosts series of events and concerts – see their website for details of events and service times.
