Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

This pretty church was opened in 1852, and its churchyard is home to the Grade II* listed mausoleum of Sir Richard Burton. The tomb is in the shape of an Arab tent, its interior embellished with oriental lamps, devotional paintings and camel bells. It holds the coffins of both Burton and his wife, Isabel Arundell Burton, who had the mausoleum built when he died in 1890. The church will operate viewings of the mausoleum as part of Open House London.
