An architectural masterpiece, designed by Sir Christopher Wren in the 17th century, whose dome is a landmark of the London skyline.

St Paul’s is home to a spectacular array of art – from the delicate carvings of Grinling Gibbons in the quire to Sir James Thornhill’s gilded dome murals. Modern works created by many decorated artists, including Yoko Ono and Antony Gormley, enrich the daily pattern of worship in the Cathedral.
