2016 marks the 350th anniversary of the Great Fire of London, and the destruction of Old St. Paul's.

As smoke rose from the ruins, Londoners considered how best to rebuild their cathedral. Christopher Wren emerged as the man to help St Paul's rise like a phoenix from the devastation, and gave us what we see today.

St. Paul's will marking the anniversary with a year-long series of events, including this interesting 'Fire Tour' where you will be led around by one of the cathedral guides and hear dramatic stories and eyewitness accounts of that tumultuous night in 1666.
