  • Wren built so many churches in London that it is often hard to know which is the most remarkable. St Stephen Walbrook was built in 1672-9. To understand the architecture of the church, you have to rea...  more »
  • The Church of St Stephen Walbrook was one of the first churches rebuilt by Christopher Wren after the great fire and the first to have a baroque dome, which then Wren has reused for his best known work, St Paul's Cathedral. Would a church very interesting to watch, but unfortunately given its location "unhappy", almost hidden among the other buildings much higher (we are in area Bank near the Mansion House and the Royal Exchange), and then the Dome you can't see very well, apart from the small garden at the back (closed by a gate, and then not always accessible) and given the fact that often the Church is not open , spends much unnoticed (in addition there are also many shipyards in the area that force us to make alternative routes), which is unfortunate, because it's one of the best testimonies of the genius of Wren.

  • An indifferent exterior belies an elegant, understated and becalmed interior. Here you will find one of the most beautiful formal spaces in all London. Wondrous and uplifting. Now what are you waiting for ?
  • July 2004, the time of my life I was completely gobsmacked by this church's outstanding acoustics while listening, in two different days, to lunch time organ recitals - which were then part of a celebration of sorts during that month where visiting organists would play during that time of day - for free! Listening to that which is any church organist's epitome: Mozart's "Toccata and Fugue in D minor" has definitely never been such an epiphanic experience as this one in St. Stephen's Walbrook!
  • From the book I Never Knew that About London "Nothing prepares you for the beauty of the interior (there is no place in London where it is more satisfying to sit and wonder.)" Some refer to the gently rounded white stone alter as the Camembert.
  • Beautiful church designed by Wren. Hard not to look up at the magnificent dome. Lovely place for some quiet contemplation.
  • London's most perfect classical church.
