City of London Churches


Saint Olave dates from the thirteenth century and is one of the smallest churches in The City.

The church survived The Great Fire but was gutted in 1941 during The Blitz. The church was finally restored in 1954.

Samuel Pepys, who had his office close by in Seething Lane, is buried with his family in the church.
