Published: Sunday 12th of October 2008

Sir Christopher Wren's architectural masterpiece St Paul's Cathedral is the capital's most popular religious visitor attraction, it has emerged.

According to new research, the Cathedral received 1.6 million visitors and was the second most popular attraction in the city, behind the Tower of London which received around two million visits.

Chief executive of VisitBritain, Tom Wright, said: "This research demonstrates the demand for all types of attractions and that consumers are less likely to be swayed by the influence of the weather."

St Paul's Cathedral, an Anglican cathedral located on Ludgate Hill in the City of London, was completed in the 17th century after several previous incarnations were destroyed down the ages.
