About St Paul's
St Paulís takes its name from the Church of England cathedral at its heart, which has been a key feature of the London skyline for over 300 years. The famous domed construction sits at the highest point within the City of London and is one of the most visited landmarks in the UK. The first church at the site was erected in the 7th century and a series of newer St Paulís cathedrals have since been built and demolished over the past millennia or so. As part of the City of London, St Paulís is much more than a tourist destination and the cathedralís surrounding areas are very significant financial and professional districts. The Bank of England and the other familiar landmarks of Londonís main banking and finance centres like the Gherkin and Lloydís of London are all also in close proximity.
