Another of London’s iconic buildings, St. Paul’s Cathedral is a magnificent Baroque-style church designed by Britain’s most celebrated architect, Sir Christopher Wren and completed in 1720. St. Paul’s holds a special place in Britain’s national identity and some of the most famous services have included the funerals of Lord Nelson, the Duke of Wellington and Sir Winston Churchill as well as the wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer in 1981.
You can walk through the main cathedral seeing the spectacular High Altar as well as, should you want to, climb the 528 steps up to the Golden Gallery in the famous dome. The Whispering Gallery is a mere 257 steps up and you can also dive down into the Crypt. There is an interactive 270° film experience and guided tours as well as the Chapels and the courtyards to explore.
East of the Rathbone in the City, St. Paul’s Cathedral is one of London’s most popular tourist attractions for the whole family.
