St. Paul's Cathedral, London

St Paul’s Cathedral was designed by court architect Sir Christopher Wren and was completed in 1710. Its famous dome is one of the world’s largest, measuring 111.3 metres high and is an iconic part of London’s skyline.

St Pauls is one of the places where national events of great importance take place. The funerals of Lord Nelson, the Duke of Wellington and Sir Winston Churchill took place in the Cathedral, Prince Charles married Lady Diana Spencer and more recently the Queen celebrated the Golden Jubilee and her 80th birthday with thanksgiving services in this place of worship.

Over the years, decoration has been added and removed so that today the history of the nation can be seen in mosaics and stone carvings throughout the building.

The Whispering Gallery which runs around the interior of the Dome and is 259 steps up from ground-level fascinates both children and adults because a whisper made against its walls can be heard on the opposite side.

Visitors can book on to a supertour, or take an audio tour which is available in English, French, German, Italian, Russian, Japanese, Mandarin and Spanish.
