St. Margaret Lothbury is known as The Banker's Church, due to its proximity to the back door of the Bank of England. It stands over the Walbrook, for a stone arch was erected over the brook in 1440 so that the church could
be extended. Wren rebuilt the fire-damaged church but the tower may be the work of Robert Hooke.

Many of the fittings are survivors from demolished City churches. The monument to the alderman and Shakespeare Gallery founder John Boydell, for example, was among memorials brought here from St Olave Jewry when it was demolished in the Victorian period (and remains moved to the City Of London Cemetery in Ilford).

It retains a small churchyard to the rear. Notable burials include Hugh Clopton and William Copland.
