Explore the magnificent interior of St Paul’s Cathedral and uncover a fascinating history that dates back centuries.


Discover a working cathedral steeped in history when you visit St Paul's Cathedral.

Destroyed by the Great Fire of London in 1666, the current building was designed by Sir Christopher Wren and completed in 1710. Its iconic dome is 111 metres (364 feet) high and is one of the largest cathedral domes in the world.

What is there to do at St Paul's Cathedral?

Experience breathtaking views along the central aisle as you enter the cathedral. Pause to admire Wellington’s Monument, a tribute to the Duke of Wellington, one of the country’s leading soldiers and statesmen.

There are also monuments to the explorer Robert Scott and the painter JMW Turner, along with a marble effigy of John Donne, poet and a former Dean of the Cathedral. Look for the scorchmarks on the base of the monument which was damaged in the Great Fire of London.

Famous artworks include William Holman Hunt’s painting, The Light of the World and the Henry Moore sculpture, Mother and Child: Hood, a memorial to modern martyrs.

Venture down to the crypt and discover the tombs and memorials of some of the nation’s greatest heroes, such as Admiral Lord Nelson, the Duke of Wellington and Sir Christopher Wren.
