Hotel St Paul's Cathedral

Description

The dome of St Paul's Cathedral at the top of Ludgate Hill is a feature of London's skyline. Although there has been a church here for nearly 1500 years, it was the rebuilding by Sir Christopher Wren after the Great Fire of London in 1666 that gives us what we see today. St Paul's is the cathedral of the London diocese and the church where great state occasions take place. Unlike many English cathedrals St Paul's is neo-classical, crowned by a dome, the second largest in the world. The interior is more open and decorated than the gothic cathedrals. Monuments and tombs to the famous abound, from Wren himself right up to the memorial of the US airmen killed in world war 2. Visitors can climb to the top of the dome for a view across London. Halfway up the dome is the whispering gallery where an acoustic effect carries a whisper from one side of the dome to the other. There is an entrance fee, and additional fees for guided tours. Visits may be restricted by services, events, recordings or restoration work. Please check the website for current times and charges. There are facilities for the disabled, including wheelchair access and induction loops, guide dogs are allowed.

Wren's masterpiece
Reviewed April 2012 by magdadh
St Paul's Cathedral is quite possibly the most beautiful building in London. We lived within a half-hour walk of St Paul's for several months, and on some days I ended up walking home from the bus-stop near the Cathedral, I can't recall why, now, but I do remember seeing that building in all weathers, at all times of day (and night) and in various seasons. At first I wasn't sure: I am not that fond of monumental buildings, and Rome's St Peter's, ...

Chillingly beautiful.
Reviewed June 2010 by auraobie
As you walk accross the Millenium Bridge, the looming mass of the dome of St Pauls casts a massive shadow accross the cathederal promenade. The symbolism here is unmissable, another reason for the darkening of London, the shadows reminding one of a mysterious and yet facinating past. The building itself is more than impressive, however as you step into the cool shadow cast by St Paul's you are taken back to a time before modern enlightenment ...
