The Garden

Opened by the City of London in 1971, St Dunstan in the East is claimed to be the most beautiful public garden in the City. An imaginative planting scheme of unusual trees, wall shrubs and flowers grows amongst the ruined arches. Climbers cover the tracery, creating a scene of romance and peace.

Set within a grade II-listed ruined Victorian wall, the site now forms part of the parish of nearby All Hallows by the Tower. Most of the church was destroyed in WW2, although the Wren tower and steeple survived.
