St. Paul’s Cathedral
Located in Central London, the St. Paul Cathedral is must-see historic building. In 1666, the Cathedral had suffered the tragic fate of being burned down in the Great Fire of London. For its rebuilding, Sir Christopher Wren was tasked with the design of the current look of the Cathedral. It remains to be a place for worship, welcoming visitors for sightseeing at the same time.
Many famous people in history have visited the Cathedral, Dr Martin Luther King had visited and given a sermon there on his trip to receive the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964. After Lord Nelson’s death in the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805, he was entombed in the Cathedral’s crypt in a coffin made from the timber of a French ship he had defeated.
For those who are interested in architecture, be sure to visit the Whispering Gallery, which is 257 steps from the floor up, and run around the interior of the Cathedral’s dome. A whisper against the walls will be audible on the opposite side!
Included with your entrance ticket is a multimedia guide available in nine languages and a guide-led tour.
