St Bride’s Church was used as inspiration by a local baker for the design of a wedding cake. It is still a very popular design for weddding cakes. The church was badly bombed in World War II. But that revealed that the church was built on top of a roman house.
St Bride’s Church is a church in the City of London, England. The building’s most recent incarnation was designed by Sir Christopher Wren in 1672 in Fleet Street in the City of London, though Wren’s original building was largely gutted by fire during the London Blitz in 1940. Due to its location in Fleet Street, it has a long association with journalists and newspapers. The church is a distinctive sight on London’s skyline and is clearly visible from a number of locations. Standing 226 feet (69m) high, it is the second tallest of all Wren’s churches, with only St Paul’s itself having a higher pinnacle.
