Praise Be (St Paul’s Cathedral)

On this day (December 2nd) in 1697 was held the first service in the “new” St Paul’s Cathedral, at the time still in the process of being built by Sir Christopher Wren (“old” St Paul’s having been destroyed during the Great Fire of 1666).  The cathedral did not  officially open until  Christmas Day, December 25th, 1711.

St Paul’s is visited, although not entered, on our “London Wall”, “Tower to Temple”, “Historic Smithfield, Clerkenwell and Holborn” and “St Paul’s to Westminster Abbey” standard walks, and on our “Saxon and Viking  London”, “Medieval London”, “Medieval City Highlights”, “Tudor and Stuart London”, “Tudor and Stuart City Highlights”, “Lost City Highlights”, “Great Fire of London” and “Lost Wren Churches” themed specials.

Further details of all our walks are available in the “Our Guided Walks” section of this web-site.

Bookings may be made through the “Contact/Booking” section of the web-site, by e-mail (lostcityoflondon@sky.com), or by phone (020-8998-3051).
