Facts

  • Cited in Simon Jenkins' 'England's Thousand Best Churches'.
  • Sir John Vanbrugh, architect of UNESCO World Heritage Site Blenheim Palace and Castle Howard is buried in St. Stephen Walbrook.
  • St. Stephen's sits on what was once the banks of the Walbrook river which is one of London's 'hidden' rivers, directed through pipework to run underground.
  • St. Stephen's is unusual in that it consists of a traditional English church plan with a nave with aisles, a chancel and crossing transepts, fused with a central dome. The resultant interior is widely considered to be Wren's best.
  • The church was the birthplace of the Samaritans.
