St Paul's Cathedral, where Margaret Thatcher's funeral was held on Wednesday, has hosted momentous national events over the centuries and is one of the most recognized buildings in London.

Rising 112 meters above the British capital, Christopher Wren's masterpiece is at least the fourth to have stood on the site.

Some of Britain's greatest heroes are entombed inside, while royal weddings, state funerals, memorials and celebrations have all taken place underneath its giant dome.
