Local Attractions

St. Paul's Cathedral

Designed by one of Britain's famous sons Sir Christopher Wren, St. Paul's Cathedral is a remarkable piece of architecture seated on Ludgate Hill in the heart of the city. Completed in 1711, the church rises to a heady 108 meters and boasts Portland stone and a striking dome shape that was inspired by St. Peter's Basilica in Rome. One of London's most visited sites, the cathedral was used for the marriage of Prince Charles to Lady Diana, and is the final resting site of former Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill, British Military Commander Charles Cornwallis and Lord Nelson. Visitors can climb the 530 steps leading to the Golden Gallery, where some of the best skyline views of London are to be found, or take a guided two-hour tour of the cathedral and crypt. St. Paul's Cathedral is open for sightseeing Monday through Saturday from 8:30 AM to 4 PM. For non-worshipping visitors, admission is £3.50 for children ages 7-16, £10 for adults, £8.50 for students and £9 for seniors. Group rates are available. Additional tour prices vary.

British Museum

1 mi. away
Designed by Foster and Partners, the Queen Elizabeth II Great Court transformed the Museum’s inner courtyard into the largest covered public square in Europe. It is a two-acre space enclosed by a spectacular glass roof with the world-famous Reading Room at its centre. The design of the Great Court was loosely based on Foster’s concept for the roof of the Reichstag in Berlin, Germany. A key aspect of the design was that with every step in the Great Court the vista changed and allowed the visitor a new view on their surroundings.
