Carol Services at St. Paul’s

A lingering regret I had from last year was missing out on the carol services at St. Paul’s. What better way to celebrate the season than with celebrating with carols in one of the most beautiful churches I have ever seen? This year we made sure to go, even though the Northern line has been on the fritz all week, making the journey to Bank a bit longer than usual.


Unfortunately someone pulled the fire alarm and the service came to a quick end when we all had to evacuate the church! What luck!

But keeping in the Christmas spirit, the choir sang on. They continued the service on the steps of St. Paul. Truly magical and warm fuzzies all around.


If you have the chance to go next year, go. Bonus? You get to walk around the church before the service starts. The services are free and not ticketed so it’s suggested you arrive early, an hour or so.

  1. We were SO close to going but just couldn’t be arsed to make it in time for the line-up. I hear the queue was around the building!

  2. I nominated you for the the Kreativ Blogger Award today 🙂

  3. I’m not sure if I’ve ever been to a carol service before! Maybe when I was a child. I want to go to Evensong again one day, maybe at Southwark Cathedral.

  4. This sounds really lovely, but what a jerk for someone to prank the fire alarm!
