St Pauls Cathedral hotels
St. Paul’s Cathedral
St. Paul’s Cathedral is a popular church in London for its architecture, its grandeur, its history, and the works of art in paintings and sculpture in the cathedral. The nave, transepts, and choir are arranged in the shape of a cross, as in most medieval churches. Some great ceremonial events have taken place here, including the funeral of Winston Churchill in 1965 and the wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana in 1981.
Following the Great Fire of London in 1666, the medieval cathedral of St. Paul’s was left in ruins. The authorities turned to Christopher Wren to rebuild it, but his ideas met with resistance from the Dean and Chapter. Wren’s 1672 Great Model Plan was not at all popular with them, and so a slightly altered version of the plan was finally agreed upon in 1675. Wren’s determination paid off though, as you can see from the grandeur of the present cathedral.
At 360 feet high, the dome at St. Paul’s is the second biggest in the world after St. Peter’s in Rome. It is as spectacular inside as it is from the outside.
