Information:

This Anglican cathedral stands on the City of London's highest point, Ludgate Hill, and is the Bishop of London's seat. Sir Christopher Wren designed the current St Paul's Cathedral, which was built in the 17th century. It is believed to be the fifth St Paul's Cathedral to be constructed on this site since the first, in 604 A.D. It is one of the best-known sights in London, and, at 111 metres tall, was the city's tallest edifice from 1719 until 1962. The dome of St Paul's Cathedral is one of the tallest in the world, with St Peter's Basilica, in Rome, being taller. St Paul's Underground station is just a two-minute walk away, while Cannon Street and Mansion House stations are a little further. Blackfriars and London Bridge Overground train stations are within easy walking distance as well, and London buses offer regular public transport routes to St Paul's Cathedral.
