1 review of St. Dunstan in the east in English
St Dunstans, just to the east of the city, between Monument and Tower Hill, is the bombed-out ruins of a medieval church which has been turned into a surprisingly tranquil spot in the heart of London.
Whilst much of the older part of the church was destroyed by the bombing campaign, the Wren tower, which had been added later, survived, and can still be seen in the gardens. Unlike other sites, the decision was made not to rebuild the church, and today it is a patch of greenery hemmed in by the ruined walls, much beloved by office workers in the area for summer lunches, but St Dunstans has something to offer at any time of year, and any time of day: for a dewy spot to enjoy your early morning coffee, or a crisp wintery breath of air, it gives a welcome break from its towering modern neighbours.
