Famous people buried at St Paul's Cathedral
St Paul's Cathedral is England's largest Protestant church. It has been rebuilt five times, once after being destroyed by the Vikings and on four occasions after it was burnt to the ground. The last fire was in 1666 when it was destroyed during the Great Fire of London. Sir Christopher Wren then designed the new St Paul's which is seen today.
