St Paul's Cathedral

St Paul's Cathedral
St Paul's Cathedral is one of London's favourite tourist destinations. The present building dates from the 17th century and was designed by Christopher Wren. The cathedral was completed on October 20, 1708, Wren's 76th birthday.

The cathedral is built of Portland stone in a late Renaissance style. Its impressive dome was inspired by St Peter's Basilica in Rome. It rises 365 feet (108 metres) to the cross at its summit, making it a famous London landmark.
