Saint Dunstan in the East Church Garden

Social Share

St Dunstan-in-the-East was a Church of England parish church on St Dunstan’s Hill, halfway between London Bridge and the Tower of London in the City of London. The church was largely destroyed in the Second World War and the ruins are now a public garden, the church garden is often referred to as the most beautiful gardens in the city of London. The bombed ruins of a medieval church and Wren Tower made into a charming scene by imaginative planting of wall chrubs and climbers and an effective fountain. An outstanding example of a small City space, which makes the maximum use of scarce resources. Designed by the City of London Architects and Parks Departments in 1971. It won a Landscape Heritage Award in 1976.The church was built in a gothic style with a steeple designed by none other than Sir Christopher Wren. This is like no other church you’ll visit in central London as it is mainly ruins as a result of sustained bombing during the second world war which have no become a public garden that is open to all – the first sight that creates you is of the beautiful church arches that are still standing after the bombing, draped in climbing greenery and ivy more so in the summer.
