More information about St. Paul's Cathedral

A symbol of faith, hope, and resilience, St. Paul’s Cathedral is an architectural wonder that fully operates as an Anglican church, honoring London’s religious roots. Take in the vast cathedral’s beautiful design on a family-friendly tour.

Sir Christopher Wren built the famed cathedral in the English Baroque style, breaking ground in 1675. It was completed decades later in 1710. The floors are paved with black and white marble, and Wren drew inspiration from Michelangelo's dome of St Peter's Basilica in constructing the legendary one that sits atop St. Paul’s.

Guests can see the world-class St. Paul’s organ, marvel at Sir James Thornhill’s illusionary paintings within the church’s dome, and hear about the cathedral’s extensive history, which has factored into movie appearances, royal events, protests, wars, and more.
