Wren’s cathedral has shared in three centuries of British history – built after the Great Fire of London destroyed its predecessor in 1666- it has many secrets hidden behind its walls. This talk looks at those who have passed through and those who remain in this historical building. A talk that hopefully will bring the building alive and inspire us all to delve a little deeper into the history of our great nation. Gary is a St Paul's Cathedral Guide with a passion for this great building and the effect it has had on this nation.Views: 194 | Enquiries: 0
