St Martin-in-the-FieldsThis 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. The church combines several roles: religious, charitable and musical with candle-lit concerts held from Thursday to Saturday, and free lunchtime recitals on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays. It also houses a gift shop, brass rubbing centre, art gallery and a courtyard as well as a glorious eaterie underneath the church - the atmospheric Cafe in the Crypt - where traditional roasts are served on a Sunday and jazz concerts take place on Wednesday nights. All profits go to support the work of the church, with its particular ministry to the homeless.
