Hidden in the centre of London, the ruins of St-Dunstan-in-the-East, a church built in the eleventh century and severely damaged during The Blitz. The ruins were repurposed into this Victorian gothic dreamscape of a public garden, crawling with Virginia creepers and creepily atmospheric. This is a brilliant example of the beauty of beautiful decay. I would’ve stayed here all night but they close at 7 pm or dusk, whichever comes first.

   The park is open all year long and free to the public. St Dunstan’s Hill, EC4, tube stations Cannon Street and Bank (image london123 flickr)
