Cheap hotels near Saint Paul's Cathedral in London, United Kingdom
Still famous as the site of the 1981 wedding of Princess Diana and Prince Charles, St. Paul's Cathedral has stood for more than 300 years as a majestic beacon in London's skyline. Its dome (once the highest spot in London) offers panoramic city views while the cathedral’s interior is awe-inspiring.
Consecrated in 1708, St. Paul's Cathedral is actually the fifth cathedral built on this spot (the first was constructed in 604). Today, the cathedral is the UK's second-largest religious building.
St. Paul's Cathedral is open for sightseeing Monday through Saturday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (last tickets are sold at 4 p.m.). For more information, including hours for religious services, visit St. Paul's Web site.
