Event description

Description

Wren’s St Paul’s Cathedral stands on Ludgate Hill in the heart of our 21st Century City, with offices, shops and restaurants almost in touching distance. It seems to welcome you in as you pass by. Its mediaeval predecessor was very different. Like cathedrals up and down the country it stood within a gated walled precinct (within the old walled city) - in many ways, a world of its own. This talk by City of London Guide Jill Finch aims to recreate that precinct with a Cathedral surrounded by buildings, a churchyard and even a prison.
