The St Paul’s Cathedral London is located in the highest point of the city at Ludgate Hill. This is an Anglican cathedral, the mother church of the Diocese of London and the seat of the Bishop of London. It is also significantly a grade one listed building in London (listed buildings, in the UK, are one placed on the Statutory List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest.)

This is a major tourist attraction of the city as it is one of the most recognisable sites of national identity. Visit the cathedral and make sure you walk the same halls as royalty and other political supremacy around the world. Its location is conveniently accessible, especially if you are accommodated in the neighbourhood at a centrally-located Belgravia hotel in London, such as the COMO The Halkin, London. This will help you travel easily to and from the many tourist sites.

The structure was designed by Sir Christopher Wren in the late 17th century and it underwent rebuilding during the great fire of London. Its magnificent white washed dome hugs the skyline of the city. It is 111m high and is the second largest building in the area.
When at the cathedral you are allowed to explore the insides of the church with a sightseeing ticket.

Enjoy the acoustics of the cathedral gallery and climb up to the dome to view a breathtaking scenery of the vibrant and regal city of London. You will be provided with a multilingual multimedia guide and a knowledgeable guide to educate you on the glorious history and the religious and cultural significance of the premises.

This is a working church with daily services, thus is mostly visited by pilgrims from all over the world and historical enthusiasts. Do keep in mind when visiting; this is a place of worship so no large bags, large rucksacks or large suitcases are allowed in.
