St.Paul's Cathedral

Found in London’s historic City district, St Paul’s Cathedral is an iconic, Grade I listed landmark is steeped in a fascinating history that stretches back throughout the city’s past. Long before the construction of the Old St Paul’s Cathedral in 1256, it is thought that an original church was founded on the same site in 604AD. The Old St Paul’s Cathedral stood for well over 300 years before it was damaged beyond repair during the Great Fire of London in 1666.

The St Paul’s Cathedral of today took around 30 years to construct and was formally consecrated in 1697. To this day, the cathedral maintains its reputation as one of London’s most famed and globally renowned landmarks, standing proudly among the many modern, corporate developments found in the City. St Paul’s Cathedral welcomes masses of sightseers, tourists and worshippers every day and its stunning interior is thought to be just as magnificent as its domed exterior.
