St Paul's Guide

Your All In London guide to St Paul's

St Paulís actually refers to the cathedral and the area immediately surrounding the magnificent building. Originally developed in 604 AD and dedicated to St Paul, the cathedral is still very central to the commercial region of the City of London.

Although the cathedral still stands proudly just north of the River Thames, this is actually the fourth building to occupy the spot. The latest cathedral was built by Sir Christopher Wren between the years of 1675 and 1710 after the Great Fire of London all but destroyed the previous building.

St Paulís has witnessed many important ceremonies, including the funerals of Sir Winston Churchill and Lord Nelson as well as the wedding of Charles, Prince of Wales to Lady Diana Spencer.
