St Giles Church, Cripplegate and one of the Barbican Towers within The Barbican centre.
St Giles Church is one of the few churches to survive both the Great Fire of 1666 and the Luftwaffe’s bombs in 1940.
It was originally built in the mid 16th-century and took its name from one of the five ancient gates into the City: Aldgate, Newgate, Bishopsgate, Cripplegate and Ludgate.
Oliver Cromwell was married here in 1620, and the grave of poet John Milton is hidden in the crypt.
