St Mary le Strand is a Church of England church at the eastern end of the Strand in the City of Westminster, London. It lies within the Deanery of Westminster (St Margaret) within the Diocese of London. The church stands on what is now a traffic island to the north of Somerset House, King's College London's Strand campus, and south of Bush House (now also part of King's College London). It is the official church of the Women's Royal Naval Service, and has a book of remembrance for members who have died in service. The nearest tube station is Temple, with the now-closed Aldwych station nearly opposite the church. It is known as one of the two 'Island Churches', the other being St Clement Danes.

  • What a beautiful little Church! Gorgeous on the inside, so tranquil and the artwork on display was amazing x
  • I have wanted to visit the church on many occasions but every time i've been in the area the gates have been shut. It only opens for services twice a week, you can however book a tour though their website. This time I got luck as one of the vergers had just finished a tour and I got in before she shut up shop. It’s a very simple looking church with some brilliant wood carving on the roof. The church has been adopted by the WRENS the Women's Royal Naval Service. Well worth a visit if you’re in the area and you can get in.
