The Secret Places of London: St Dunstan-in-the-East

This weekend I went to London for the fifth time and I wanted to visit something I had never seen before.

After an intense Google search I narrowed down the to-do list to two places and of them was St Duntstan-in-the-East.

Hidden away in a secluded side street in the heart of bustling financial center of London, St Dunstan is an abandoned church. It first got destroyed by the great fire of London in 1666 and then during the Second World War. The ruins have become a charming public garden, overgrown with orchard trees, ivy and wall climbing plants that make the place one of a kind. It is especially popular for lunch time retreat for the workers nearby who want to escape the office environment for a while.

I was very lucky to see it on a warm and sunny spring day and really enjoyed being there, sitting totally relaxed in this mystic ambiance, surrounded by modern skyscrapers.

Here is how it look like, isn’t it enchanting?
