Like many other iconic attractions in London, St Paul’s Cathedral is an English Baroque style and Church of England cathedral built in the 16th century by Sir Christopher Wren. The St Paul’s Cathedral is a religious, historic and architectural site. It is the second largest cathedral in England. This church is built on the peak of Ludgate Hill which is the highest point in London and at 365 feet the dome dominates London’s skylines for over three hundred years.
For over a century and half the St Paul’s Cathedral was the tallest building in London until 1962 and the dome is yet the highest in the world. Some of the important services at the St Paul’s Cathedral are funeral of Lord Nelson, the Duke of Wellington, Sir Winston Churchill and Margaret Thatcher; Jubilee celebrations for Queen Victoria; peace services for the First and Second World Wars; the wedding of Charles, Prince of Wales, and Lady Diana Spencer, the launch of the Festivals for Britain and the thanksgiving services for Golden Jubilee, the 80th Birthday and the Diamond Jubilee of Elizabeth II. The church still conducts hourly services and prayers.
