St Giles Church, CripplegateSituated in the centre of the Barbican complex, this church is of great historical and architectural interest. There is a Roman wall in the churchyard, John Milton is buried here and Oliver Cromwell married here. There is a permanent display of photographs of the church and the local area. Recitals are held on a regular basis. The novelist A.N. Wilson wrote: "The Barbican is now an immense plate-glass fantasy, enormous gleaming towers soaring upward to the sky. But, doggedly, in the middle of it all, St Giles Cripplegate, bombed and repaired, stands as the last imaginable little memorial."
