Get up close and personal with St Paul's Cathedral

Published: Saturday 17th of May 2008

St Paul's Cathedral has adorned London's iconic cityscape for almost 300 years.

In an effort to raise funds to ensure the cathedral remains as break-taking as ever, people can now bid for five unique experiences such as playing the grand organ, enjoying a private recital in the Quire and taking a scaffold tour of the building.

All money raised will go towards maintenance, restoration, repair and conservation work which is undertaken by the St Paul's Cathedral Foundation.

London has been home to a cathedral dedicated to St Paul since 60AD, however the current structure, which was designed by Sir Christopher Wren and took 35 years to build, was designed to replace its predecessor which feel foul of the Great Fire of London in 1666.

The legendary status of the cathedral was assured during the second world war when, as the smoke settled after one of the heaviest bombing raids on London, the building triumphantly emerged unscathed.

Tourists who have invested in a London city pass can gain access to St Paul's Cathedral free of charge.
