Saint Paul's Cathedral, London

Saint Paul's Cathedral, London (must see)

Saint Paul’s Cathedral is a beautiful terra cotta church, home of the Diocese of Huron – a division of the Anglican Church of Canada. It was built in 1845 in Gothic Revival architectural style by English architect William Thomas, who contributed to over twenty other buildings in Ontario. Originally the towers included six bells, but in 1901 another four were added and in 1935 they were recast into eleven. The oldest church in the city, St Paul’s Cathedral has an ornate interior decorated with carved wood frescoes and beautiful stained glass designs. The church has a large congregation with good traditions of Mass services and other religious events. The designated plaque installed in 2006 officially crowns the Cathedral as a Heritage Property of the City of London.
