St. Paul's Cathedral, London: 289 reviews and 570 photos


St Paul's Cathedral became even more well known around the world when Charles and Di got married there in 1981. The building was constructed between 1675 and 1710 and stands on the site of two previous cathedrals dating back to 604.

The famous dome of the Cathedral is the biggest in the world after St Peter's in Rome. Sir Christopher Wren, the architect, is memorialised in the crypt, along with Wellington and Nelson.

It is said that if you visit the Whispering Gallery encircling the base of the dome, you can hear whispering from across the other side. There are some great view to be had from the top of the dome.

Open Weekdays and Saturdays 8.30a.m. to 4.00pm. Sunday is closed for sightseeing but a service is at 11.00am.
