St Dunstan's in the East Church Garden

Beauty shines among destruction in the gardens of St-Dunstan-in-the-East Church. Escape the tourist hordes for quiet reflection and joy.
St-Dunstan-in-the-East Church boasts nearly 1,000 years of history, worship, and hardship. It originally served as a parish church in what is now the City of London. You may find yourself amongst the major sites, but we encourage you to take a detour for this unique experience. While this location is a current-day hotspot for tourists and high-level finance workers alike, it has placed the church front and centre of some of the most devastating events in London’s history. The church was badly damaged in the Great Fire of London and was eventually repaired. Centuries later, nothing could save it from a German bomb during the Blitz. London’s resiliency shines among the ruins, with stunning, haunting gardens that are open to the public. Take a breather from the bustle and reflect on beauty’s emergence in the most unlikely spots.
