St Paul’s Cathedral (7/10)

List item

St Paul’s Cathedral sits on Ludgate Hill at the highest point in the city of London where it has dominated the London skyline for over 300 years. Designed by famous English architect Sir Christopher Wren, the present building dates back to the late 17th century, and its dome remains one of the highest in the world.
The cathedral was almost destroyed during world war 2 when it was hit by bombs which shifted the whole dome laterally by a small amount. One bomb dropped in September 1940 was a time-delayed bomb which was successfully defused and removed. Had it exploded, it would have destroyed the cathedral completely.
St Paul’s Cathedral is where the wedding of Prince Charles and Princess Diana took place, as it seated more than the traditional place for royal weddings, Westminster Abbey.
