The Temple Church on Inner Temple Lane, just off Fleet Street in London.

I was reading The Da Vinci Code and the characters visit this Church in the book, later in the day I realised the place I was staying over night was not far from where this Church was supposed to be, so I got out my trusty London A-Z and tracked it down the following morning!

According to the book the Church was consecrated on 10th February 1185 by Heraclius, Patriach of Jerusalem - it survived eight centuries of political turmoil, the great fire of London and the first World War only to be heavily damaged by German Luftwaffe bombs in 1940 (WW2). After the war is was restored and it seems to be in very good condition still.
