St Stephen Walbrook information
Just south of Mansion House, St Stephen Walbrook (1679) is considered to be the finest of Wren’s City churches and, as it was his first experiment with a dome, a forerunner to St Paul’s Cathedral. Sixteen pillars with Corinthian capitals support the dome, and the modern travertine marble altar, nicknamed 'the Camembert', is by sculptor Henry Moore.
