Sir Christopher Wren's creation

Sir Christopher Wren's creation

The current St Paul's Cathedral building was constructed after the old one was damaged by the Great Fire.

Session description

Explore hidden alleyways, sing songs in a ruined churchyard, admire St Paul’s Cathedral and see the remains of the old City wall. Skilled Blue Badge tourist guides will entertain and inform, achieving key learning objectives, while encouraging questioning and discussion which extends learning well beyond the curriculum.

You’ll never look at the city in quite the same way!

Combined with a visit to the War, Plague & Fire gallery this walk (which starts and finishes at the museum) makes a perfect day out.
