See great views of London from the tower of St Luke’s Church on Sunday

St Luke with Holy Trinity, Charlton
St Luke with Holy Trinity is opening its doors to Horn Fair visitors

To coincide with the Horn Fair taking place across the road at Charlton House on Sunday, St Luke’s Church is offering a rare chance to climb its tower to take in the views across London.

The 17th-century building was traditionally a landmark for ships on the Thames – it still has the right to fly the Royal Ensign on two days a year in recognition of its former role.

It’s not the easiest of climbs for sufferers of vertigo, but we’re assured the views from the top are spectacular. And the church itself is worth a look if you’ve never been inside.

The church and tower will be open from noon to 4pm this Sunday, 17 October.

On Monday evening, the church is also hosting an information evening on for Safe Families, a charity working locally to provide support to isolated families.

At Safe Families we believe no one should be alone. Join us to find out how you can make this happen in Greenwich.

Join us where we will be sharing about who we are and the different ways you can support families in your community alongside Safe Families.
