London, St. Paul's Cathedral

St Paul's Cathedral is an Anglican cathedral on Ludgate Hill, in the City of London, and the seat of the Bishop of London. The cathedral is built of Portland stone in a late Renaissance style by Sir Christopher Wren (1632-1723). Its dome was inspired by St Peter's Basilica in Rome. The nave has three small chapels in the two aisles – All Souls and St Dunstan's in the north aisle and the Chapel of the Order of St Michael and St George in the south aisle. Under the 108.4 meters Dom there are three galleries – the internal Whispering Gallery, the external Stone Gallery, and the external Golden Gallery. The design was approved in 1675, but it took until 1711 before the Cathedral was finally finished. St Paul's is home to other plaques, carvings, statues, memorials and tombs of famous British figures. St Paul's was used for the marriage of Charles, Prince of Wales and Lady Diana Spencer.
