St George the Martyr

This Southwark church, built in 1736 and restored, was the scene for the baptism and marriage of a Dickens heroine (in his novel Little Dorrit). Moreover, the character is portrayed in a stained glass window. The pulpit is the tallest in London, while the Georgian chandelier and Te Deum ceiling are unique.
