One of the capital’s most wonderful buildings
St George’s Church
The Church of England parish church of Bloomsbury
A church for all people
St George's Bloomsbury is the sixth and final
London church designed by the leading architect
of the English Baroque, Nicholas Hawksmoor.
Originally consecrated in 1731, St George's was
reopened to the public in 2006 following a five
year restoration initiated and managed by the
World Monuments Fund Britain and made
possible by the generosity of the Paul Mellon
Estate and the Heritage Lottery Fund.
Today, St George's is a thriving parish church,
concert venue and centre for community arts and
education located at the heart of Bloomsbury,
two minutes walk from the British Museum. Both
the church and our multimedia exhibition
Hawksmoor & Bloomsbury are open on a regular
basis to visitors.
