Enter London's Mother Church
There has been a church on this site in the City of London
for 1400 years and the current St. Paul's Cathedral is the mother church of the Diocese of London. Designed by famed architect Sir Christopher Wren in the grand English Baroque style, it was completed in 1697 and the dome remained the highest structure in London until 1967. Visitors are welcome after the 8:00am Eucharist service, and a highlight is the Whispering Gallery where you and a friend can stand on opposite walls and hear each other across the void. Continue up the stairs to the Golden Gallery, at 280 feet it's the high point of the outer dome, and you'll be treated to panoramic views of London and up and down the River Thames.
