St DUNSTAN’S in the EAST
Atmospheric garden inside the ruins of a medieval-Baroque church destroyed during the Blitz. The church of St Dunstan's in the East dates from 1100. It was severely damaged in the Great Fire of 1666 and repaired, with a new tower and steeple, designed by Wren, being added. It was then gutted by bombs in 1941 and, after the war, it was decided not to rebuild it. In 1967, the City of London undertook to open it as a garden, which it did in 1970. It is beautiful - and used for events so check before making a special trip.
