One of London's most famous landmarks. This magnificent building dates back to the 17th century. The cathedral is built from Portland stone in the late Renaissance style of architecture. The Cathedral is 365 feet high at it's zenith. The Church organ is the third largest in Great Britain with over 7,000 pipes. Many famous people are buried or have monuments here including Sir Christopher Wren, Samuel Johnson and Winston Churchill.

Thanks to heroic efforts and the Grace of God, the Cathedral managed to escape destruction during World War Two, being struck by bombs in Sept and Oct 1940 and April 1941.
