St Paul's Cathedral is a cathedral on Ludgate Hill, in the City of London, and the seat of the Bishop of London.
The cathedral was completed on October 20, 1708, Wren's 76th birthday (although the first service was held on December 2, 1697), and has survived until the present day, despite being targeted during the Blitz (it was struck by a bomb on October 9, 1940, but survived).
