St Paul’s Churchyard

St. Paul’s Cathedral was first built in 604AD, however, it was destroyed on a number of occasions, firstly by the Vikings and secondly by the Great Fire of London in 1666. The present day cathedral was built between 1675 and 1710 and was designed by Christopher Wren.

The cathedral is famous for its dome which is 85m high and is a visible part of London’s skyline. The Golden Gallery is at the top of the cathedral and after climbing 530 steps to reach it you will be amazed at the panoramic views of the city. Another important feature in the cathedral is the crypt, which has an OBE Chapel and hosts tombs belonging to historic figures such as Admiral Nelson, the Duke of Wellington and Christopher Wren.
