Perched atop the highest point in London, and a Grade I listed building under the Historic Buildings and Monuments Commission for England by the British Government, St. Paul’s Cathedral is an Anglican church, which is also the matrice or Mother Church of the Church of England’s province of Canterbury or the Diocese of London.
After being ruined 4 times throughout history, St. Paul’s Cathedral is still very much a distinguished and celebrated part of the London skyline for the past 300 odd years and the second largest dome in the United Kingdom. The interiors are admirable and the dome with its 528 steps can be climbed up to gaze at the breathtaking and panoramic view of central London. The present structure was built in 1708.
The Cathedral also houses the Whispering Gallery, an acoustic wonder, with a slight whisper being heard clearly across 100 feet. The underground place is the burial site, and the crypt, which is the largest in Europe, has the tombs of nation’s many heroes, and also of the architect who constructed this masterpiece, Sir Christopher Wren.
If one wishes to attend the service at the cathedral, they can do so, but they won’t be able to access the dome and other buildings as they are all closed during the time of worship. The cathedral itself is very magnanimous and intricately designed, so one can definitely take in the beauty of the place while worshipping at the church.
Please Note: No photography is allowed inside the cathedral. Also, no trolleys or large bags are allowed inside either.
