St Giles-without-Cripplegate is an Anglican church in the City of London, located on Fore Street within the modern Barbican complex. When built it stood without (that is, outside) the city wall, near the Cripplegate. The church is dedicated to St Giles, patron saint of lepers, beggars and the handicapped. It is one of the few medieval churches left in the City of London, having survived the Great Fire of 1666.

  • The church itself is rather shabby. Just a protestant prayer house, mostly devoid of beauty. But it is worth visiting for one thing - the magnificent stained glass with various saints. It contains a beautiful image of St Anselm of Canterbury wearing green vestments and a hare by his feet. I love St Anselm and this is one of the most charming images of this Doctor of the Church I have seen. So, visit the church and enjoy the magnificent stained glass window.
  • A beautiful church in a pleasant setting by the Barbican lake, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city. It has a good acoustic too. I've played in concerts and masterclasses here for decades.
