St James's Church, Piccadilly, also known as St James's Church, Westminster, and St James-in-the-Fields, is an Anglican church on Piccadilly in the centre of London, United Kingdom. The church was designed and built by Sir Christopher Wren.Plan my London trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
The church is built of red brick with Portland stone dressings. Its interior has galleries on three sides supported by square pillars, and the nave has a barrel vault supported by Corinthian columns. The carved marble font and limewood reredos are both notable examples of the work of Grinling Gibbons.
In 1662, Henry Jermyn, 1st Earl of St Albans, was granted land for residential development on what was then the outskirts of London. He set aside land for the building of a parish church and churchyard on the south side of what is now Piccadilly. Christopher Wren was appointed the architect in 1672 and the church was consecrated on 13 July 1684 by Henry Compton, the Bishop of London. In 1685 the parish of St James was created for the church.

来月この教会でするコンサートのチケットを購入したので、夕方この教会の前を通った時、どんな感じか覗いてみました。 ホームレスの方達が真ん中の列以外は全て占領して寝ていて、少しショックでした。 教会だから大目に見ているのでしょうか？ コンサートの時間の少し前には追い出されるのでしょうが、あまり良い気持ちはしませんでした。 それと教会なので席に段差がないので前に背が高い人が座った場合はアンラッキーと諦め... more »I bought a ticket to the concert to be done at this church next month, so when I passed in front of this church in the evening, I took a peek at what it was like. I was a little shocked that the homeless people were sleeping in all but the middle row. Is it a church, so do you look at it? I would have been kicked out shortly before the concert, but I didn't feel very good. And because it is a church, there is no step in the seat, so if a tall person sits in front of it, i have no choice but to give up unlucky. If you want to see the musician's face and finger movements, the price is cheaper than other concert halls, so the most expensive seat is recommended.
教会の庭で料理の屋台が出ていました。中華やトルコ料理が気軽に食べられます。教会の中は大変シンプルです。コンサートを開催することもあります。 more »There was a food stand in the church yard. Chinese and Turkish dishes are readily available. The church is very simple. There are also concerts.
