Saint Dunstan in the East Church Garden

London, United Kingdom • Wishlist • 

The church of St. Dunstan was bombed in the Blitz of 1941, and after the decision was not made to rebuild the church, the ruins were turned into a beautiful public garden 🌿 Bonus, for any Lord of the Rings fans out there, the garden looks like a scene straight out the movies! 🙈

Ye Olde Trip To Jerusalem

Nottingham, United Kingdom • Wishlist • 

The “oldest” pub in England. Apparently, the landlord boards go back to 1760 but there's a cave inside which dates back to 1070. There's also a wooden galleon on display. Don't touch it though! It's rumoured to be cursed. 💀
