Most Record Offices appear to have cut-off points after which they do not want stuff to appear for privacy reasons. I suspect that if you looked what dates the different Record Offices asked for, you might find some degree of variation but most seem to be roughly, vaguely around there or thereabouts.

Generally the cut-off date online due to the Data Protection Act will be 100 years ago, so its the archive office or you may have to arrange a visit to the church.

As baptism records are (a) by no means universal, particularly as the 20th century moves on and (b) limited in the information they provide, civil registration records are usually a preferable source. Unless you are unlucky enough to be tracing progeny of SMITH and JONES, it is normally quite straightforward to make a reasonable stab at parents names by looking for marriages of surname + mother's maiden name.

London baptisms on ancestry now go to 1914, but it seems that most of the newly added records are "text only" (no images yet)
London Marriages and Banns extended to 1930 (from 1921), but again most of the new records are (partial) transcriptions
