St Paul's Cathedral
See below grid for details
Filming and photography is not
allowed inside the Cathedral
Cathedral – the fourth to occupy this site – was designed by the court architect
Sir Christopher Wren and built between 1675 and 1710 after its predecessor was
destroyed in the Great Fire of London. It had also burned down before far
earlier. It's well known for its dome.
See its website for history. They used to allow
photography, but now I presume they just want to sell guide books, souvenirs
etc. So as a photographer it's not a place for me to visit again.

This page is a Quick Guide, the idea of Quick
Guides is to allow very basic information and linking forward information to be
added to the system rather than having to wait until a full location guide has
been developed. It should therefore be considered a development stage rather
than a finished objective. Once more information is known the objective is to
create either a Location or Featured Location page which has two grids and far
Please let us know any other information that we
can add to the Further information and Planning Grids or page and any errors that you discover. Before making a long trip to any location it is always
wise to double check the current information, websites like magazines may be
correct at the time the information is written, but things change and it is of
course impossible to double check all entries on a regular basis. If you have
any good photographs that you feel would improve the illustration of this page
then please let us have copies. In referring to this page it is helpful if you
quote the Page Ref and Classification at the bottom of the Planning Grid above. To print the
planning grid select it then right click and print the selected area.
Please submit information on locations you discover so
that this system continues to grow.
