Staple Inn - WC1
Staple Inn dates from 1585 and escaped the great fire of 1666, but got badly damaged in a WWII air raid. Over the centuries there have been various additions and repairs but what you see is still a largely intact Tudor building, which is so cool. Behind it, as behind so many of the busy streets in this area, are some of the wonderful Inns of Court (more blogging on that to come). So take a moment in your busy day to stand on the traffic island in the middle of the road and admire this truly amazing structure.
