Within the scary depths of St Martin-in-Fields, you can purchase your own brass rubbing kit, choose a pattern (copies of medieval plates) and rub brass to your heart's delight. Or you can choose a finished rubbing from St Martin's wide selection. It usually runs to about £2.90 for the materials. Children must be over five-years old in order to participate in brass rubbing at the London Brass Rubbing Centre.
A great experience for kids and parents, the brass rubbings are done in the Crypt, a wonderfully historic feeling place. The price for materials is quite reasonable, especially by London standards. The Crypt also has a buffet cafe (good food and good value) and the gift shop for St. Martin-in-the-Fields. Go on the right day and you can go upstairs to the church for a free lunchtime concert.
