St. Paul's Cathedral, located in the financial area of the City of London was built into its current form in the later parts of the 1600s after the Great Fire of London.

St. Paul’s Cathedral is one of London’s most well-known destinations. The current cathedral, designed by Sir Christopher Wren, was completed in 1711. It was the tallest building in London until 1967, and the white stone exterior of the building is still a view to admire.

The church has held events like the wedding of Prince Charles and Diana, as well as the funerals of Lord Nelson, Winston Churchill and Margaret Thatcher.

The church is open to tourists, and one of the highlights of the tour of the church is visiting the Golden Dome 85m above ground, where you can get a great view of the city. The church, along with services, hosts other religious musical events.
