See ancient artifacts at All Hallows Barking-by-the-Tower, one of the city's oldest churches. Founded in 675 by the Saxon Abbey at Barking, the structure contains the arch of the original Saxon church. Made with recycled Roman tiles, the 7th-century arch predates any other surviving piece of church material. Visit the crypt museum underneath the church, which features religious and historical artifacts, including an ancient Roman road. Walk through the church's cemetery, where several people beheaded at the Tower of London are buried, including Thomas More, Bishop John Fisher, and Archbishop Laud. Take a guided tour to learn more about the church's history, or download an audio tour before your visit.
