    Great bishop church in Cannon Street. Unfortunately, the ticket prices of 18 pounds (2017) are very significant.

    Even if the entrance fee is enormously high (but where is that in England not the case), worth a visit - even the dome (Whispering Gallery)

    The cathedral is the second largest church in Europe after St. Peter's Basilica in Rome. The Krichen ship has a 152m length.

    St Paul's Cathedral is an Anglican cathedral in London, United Kingdom, which, as the cathedral of the Bishop of London, serves as the mother church of the Diocese of London. It sits on Ludgate Hill at the highest point of the City of London and is a Grade I listed building. Its dedication to Paul the Apostle dates back to the original church on this site, founded in AD 604.The present cathedral, dating from the late 17th century, was designed in the English Baroque style by Sir Christopher Wren. Its construction, completed in Wren's lifetime, was part of a major rebuilding programme in the City after the Great Fire of London.The cathedral building largely destroyed in the Great Fire, now often referred to as Old St Paul's Cathedral, was a central focus for medieval and early modern London, including Paul's walk and St Paul's Churchyard being the site of St Paul's Cross.The cathedral is one of the most famous and most recognisable sights of London. Its dome, framed by the spires of Wren's City churches, has dominated the skyline for over 300 years. At 365 feet (111 m) high, it was the tallest building in London from 1710 to 1963. The dome remains among the highest in the world. St Paul's is the second-largest church building in area in the United Kingdom after Liverpool Cathedral. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St_Paul%27s_Cathedral

    Great church, an absolutely dominant eye catcher. Also very worth seeing from the inside.

    There has been a church here since AD 604, but the present building dates from the late 17th century as its predecessor burnt down in the Great Fire of London. With its 111m dome it was the tallest building in London until 1963, the dome is still one of the highest in the world. The building only survived the Blitz because a time-delayed bomb hitting the building could be defused in time.

    The Saint Paul's Cathedral is really impressive. Construction began in 1675 and was finally completed in 1708. Many important events took place here, e.g. the wedding of Lady Diana and many more. Must visit if possible.
