The church of St Margaret Pattens was first established over 900 years ago. The present building was built by Sir Christopher Wren between 1684 and 1687 to replace an earlier Tudor building that was destroyed in the Great Fire of 1666.

Wheelchair access is available via the pedestrianized street running along the north side of the church. The nearest tube stations are Monument, Bank and Tower Hill.
