Visit St Jude's Church, Hampstead

Saint Jude-on-the-Hill is the Parish Church of Hampstead Garden Suburb, and was designed by Edwin Lutyens, widely recognised as one of the greatest English architects of the first part of the twentieth century.


The church is a hybrid construction and whilst building began in 1909, and the church was consecrated in May 1911, the west end was not completed until 1935

The author Evelyn Waugh was confirmed at St Jude's in 1921 and C. S. Lewis gave two speeches there, in November 1942 and April 1945.
