About St Martin-in-the-Fields

This historic church of St Martin-in-the-Fields overlooking Trafalgar Square was built in 1726 and is the best known work of Scottish architect James Gibbs whose first public building was St Mary-le-Strand. The Palladian features of St Martin-in-the-Fields reveal the influence of Gibbs' training under the leading Roman architect of the time, Carlo Fontana. More about St Martin-in-the-Fields
