Lonely Planet review

Another of Wren’s great churches, St Mary-le-Bow (1673) is famous as the church with the medieval curfew bells that still dictate who is – and who is not – a true cockney; it’s said that a true cockney has to have been born within earshot of Bow Bells. The church’s delicate steeple is one of Wren’s finest works.
