Beautifully renovated church in the heart of the city dating back to 1550 and King Edward VI.
The world famous painter Vincent Van Gogh, during his stay in London in the late 1800’, visited the Church many times as he was drawing the magnificent old building that was destroyed in the Blitz.
This hidden gem is incredibly central, yet secluded, located on Austin Friars and away from the busy roads. In fact is just a few minutes walk from Liverpool Street, Moorgate and Bank Underground Stations.
The Dutch Hall is Grade II listed building and strikes a perfect balance between stunning original character and contemporary design features.
