London Off The Beaten Path: 1,701 reviews and 3,049 photos


ST. Dunstan's in the East was built by Wren after the great fire on the same site as a church has stood since Saxon times. It was all but destroyed in a bomb during WW II although the Wren tower still stands. I was walking around in the City of London and spotted the spire, went down a side street and found it. The grounds where the church was is now a little park with benches and flowers and lots of greenery climbing the remains of the church walls. It was an unexpected little haven in the crowded City.

Walk east down Eastcheap, which turns into Great Tower Street. You'll spot the spire on your right and the street is St. Dunstan's Hill.
