St Bride's Church

St Bride's Church is a church designed by Sir Christopher Wren on Fleet Street in the City of Westminster. Due to its location on Fleet Street it has a long association with journalists and newspapers. The church is a distinctive sight on London's skyline and the tiered steeple is said to be the inspiration for the design of modern tiered wedding cakes. The church dedicated to St Bride, was wrecked by bombs dropped by the Luftwaffe during the Second World War, and was rebuilt at the expense of newspaper proprietors and journalists.

A church has stood in the location of St Bride's for centuries.
