St. Paul's Cathedral: London's Architectural Masterpiece

St. Paul's Cathedral holds a special place in the hearts of Londoners. From surviving the Blitz bombings during World War II, which left it unscathed despite the surrounding destruction, to the marriage of Lady Diana Spencer to Prince Charles, this cathedral embodies the identity of both London and the entire nation.

Instead of merely admiring the sublime baroque facade, book your ticket in advance to avoid queues and explore the sumptuous interior of the cathedral. Look up to marvel at the golden ceilings and the interior of the dome itself, surrounded by a gallery accessible to the public. For architect Sir Christopher Wren, the challenge was to make St. Paul's the true symbol of the city's rebirth after the Great Fire of London in 1666. However, his ideas were not the most popular, and much of the construction drew the crowd's ire. Yet, once completed, it did not take long for St. Paul's, the tallest building in London until the late 1960s, to become a celebrated landmark embraced by all.
