It's debatable saying that Sir Christopher Wren was England's most famous ever. Though he was very well-regarded in history, Zaha Hadid, Norman Foster, and Richard Rogers might be more known now. I don't think you should remove the question; just maybe rephrase it as "ONE OF ENgland's more famous architects."
