This church is situated directly adjacent to the Holborn Circus roundabout.
The medieval church of St Andrew Holborn survived the Great Fire of 1666, but in 1686 Sir Christopher Wren was commissioned to redesign the building which was to be one of his most spacious churches.
During World War II the church was gutted following enemy action, but following 1945 it was carefully restored as the church of the London trade guilds, although the lower part of the tower is virtually all that remains from the original church.
In 1817, Benjamin Disraeli, the Jewish-born Prime Minister, was baptised here. Later in the 19th century a charity school was attached to the church.
