St. Paul's Cathedral

Search London

Sir Christopher Wren designed this wonderful building, which was started 9 years after the medieval St Paul's was destroyed in the Fire of London, and completed in 1711. It was hailed as the world's first Protestant cathedral and to this day dominates much of the city's skyline. You can climb up in to the Whispering Gallery in the dome, where a whisper at one side carries right round the dome; the Stone Gallery gives a view over the city; the Golden Gallery is situated at the top of the dome. The crypt is equally impressive, containing the tombs of both Nelson and Wellington. St Paul's is first and foremost a place of Christian Worship, featuring concerts and recitals, public lectures, and exhibitions. Guided and audiocassette tours available. John Moses, Dean. Open Mon-Sat.
