An attractive enough church which was severely damaged by enemy bombing in World War Two but remained standing, unlike almost all other buildings in this area. Heavily restored, it now stands in a 'sea' of concrete within the huge modernist Barbican Development. It stands over the lake from the terrace frontage of the Barbican Centre. It is a busy church...

We traveled to England in September of 2013 to visit my cousin. I wanted to trace some of my first husband's family's ancestry and I knew that John Speed was buried at St. Giles Cripplegate Church. My cousin and I spent almost an hour finding the church, nestled amongst the tall buildings in the Barbican area of London. Guess what,... More

Staying in City of London

Neighborhood Profile
City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighborhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighborhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
