St Paul's Cathedral

Famed for its distinctive dome and the Whispering Gallery this magnificent building is perhaps the finest example Sir Christopher Wren's architectural work. Construction of the first cathedral on the site began in approximately 1087AD by Bishop Maurice, Chaplain to William the Conqueror. Like many buildings St Paul's was destroyed by the Great Fire of London in 1666. Sir Christopher Wren was commissioned to build a new cathedral for London and work was finally completed in 1708. Alongside the Grand Organ, dating back to 1694, the cathedral has three other organs.

The nearest London Underground stations are St Paul's, Mansion House, Blackfriars and Bank; overground stations City Thames Link, Blackfriars and Cannon Street are all within 10 minutes walk. Bus routes 4, 11, 15, 23, 25, 26, 100 and 242 all stop nearby.
