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.
