St. Sepulchre-without-Newgate is the largest church in the City of London. The tower and outer walls were built around 1450.

Badly damaged in the Great Fire of 1666, the church was rebuilt by Wren's masons in 1670-71.

The ashes of Sir Henry Wood, founder of the Proms (the longest running continuous series of orchestral concerts in the world) are interred in the Musicians' Chapel where now can be found the Musicians' Book of Remembrance containing the names of over two thousand professional musicians.

There is a stained glass window commemorating Captain John Smith, the first Governor of Virginia, who was captured by Indians and freed by Pocahontas. Smith died in 1631 and is buried in the St. Sepulchre's.

The tower holds the twelve bells of the Old Bailey as in the nursery rhyme 'Oranges and Lemons':
"When will you pay me?" say the Bells of Old Bailey
