The current Cathedral – the fourth to occupy this site – was designed by the court architect Sir Christopher Wren and built between 1675 and 1710 after its predecessor was destroyed in the Great Fire of London. Its architectural and artistic importance reflect the determination of the five monarchs who oversaw its building that London's leading church should be as beautiful and imposing as their private palaces.

Geschiedenis van Londen

London has no known founder. Legend tells of a King Lud, after whom Ludgate Hill and Ludgate Circus are named. A scarred and battered statue of the mythic monarch, flanked by his supposed sons, can still be seen , tucked away beside the church of St Dunstan in the West on Fleet Street.

With the collapse of Roman administration Londinium was abandoned in the fifth century. As farming people the invading Anglo-Saxons, who gradually pushed the native Romano-British westwards, had no taste for city life and preferred to found villages which are now London's suburbs or satellites such as Fulham, Mitcham, Ealing and Barking.

The population of London tripled under the Tudors, making it not only the nation's greatest city but by far the greatest - almost a hundred times more populous than the Stratford on Avon in which Shakespeare grew up before coming to bustling Bankside as actor-manager at the Globe Theatre.

 Museum van London
The Museum of London illustrates over two thousand years of London's social history, from prehistoric times to the twentieth century. On display are reconstructed Victorian shops and the Great Fire Experience, which shows how fire destroyed more than three quarters of the city and many of its churches, including St Paul's Cathedral. Archaeologists at the museum recently excavated two deep Roman wells in the City of London, discovering the remains of mechanisms used to lift water to the surface in Roman times.

Muziek & Cultuur

Londen in de sixties  -  een van de hoogtepunten van de Europese geschiedenis
De zestiger jaren in Londen zijn samen te vatten in 'Swinging London', een containerbegrip voor de mode- en culturele scŤne die in de jaren 1960 in Londen tot bloei kwam (en zijn weg naar Amsterdam vond).
Het was een jeugd-georiŽnteerd fenomeen dat de vrijheid, het nieuwe en moderne benadrukte. Het was een periode van optimisme en hedonisme, en een culturele revolutie.
