Tower Tours


Experience stunning views of the city from this recently-restored East London landmark

Since 1833 St John's Church has welcomed people from around the world to the vibrant community of Leytonstone.

Designed by architect Edward Blore, who also worked on Buckingham Palace and Westminster Abbey, the tower of St John's Church, Leytonstone, is an East London landmark. Now, following an 11-year restoration programme, we invite you to experience a unique view of London from the top of the 23 metre (75 ft) tower.

Look out for the Olympic Park, St Paul's Cathedral, The O2 (Millennium Dome), the Shard, Canary Wharf, BT Tower, the London Eye, Epping Forest, and the hills of Essex, Kent and Surrey beyond.
