Afternoon Walk Around St Paul's Cathedral

The lasting monument to the glory of God and a symbol of the hope, resilience and strength of the city of London and the United Kingdom.

This cathedral dedicated to St Paul has stood on its site since 604AD, and the current cathedral as we see today was designed by the architect Sir Christopher Wren and was built from 1675 to 1710 after the Great Fire of London.

As a lasting monument to the glory of God and a symbol of the hope, resilience and strength of the city and the nation, there are lots of important services that have been held at St Paul’s, from the funerals of Lord Nelson and Sir Winston Churchill, to the Golden Jubilee celebration of Queen Elizabeth ll, and the wedding of Charles, Prince of Wales to Lady Diana Spencer.

At 365 feet high, St Paul’s was the tallest building in London before 1962. Its rich history make St Paul’s a unmissable place for visitors to discover the cathedral, and a busy working church where people come to find peace.
