St Clement Danes is one of the two ‘island churches’ in the Strand, the other being St Mary-le-Strand, and is claimed to be the one featured in the nursery rhyme ‘Oranges and Lemons’ and indeed the bells do play that tune! The church was completed in 1682 by Sir Christopher Wren and mostly destroyed during the Blitz in 1941. It was restored following an appeal for funds by the RAF and re-consecrated in 1958 to become the “Central Church of the Royal Air Force”.
