St Dunstan In The East
The church was repaired after the Great Fire in 1666. Wren constructed a new tower. The church was largely rebuilt between 1817 and 1821. It was bombed during WWII and the ruins were preserved as a public garden. Today it is incredibly serene, and the vine covered tracery make it a gothic fantasy in a sea of late 20th Century office buildings.
