St Paul’s Cathedral
was originally designed in a European Gothic style by William Butterfield
, and constructed between 1880-91. The spires were designed by John Barr, a redesign of Butterfield’s original, and were constructed from 1926. The Cathedral was built on the land originally occupied by St Paul’s Church, which was demolished in 1885 to make way for the southern end of the Cathedral. Weddings, funerals and baptisms are all held in the cathedral, as well as a number of services, as this place is one of the most popular cathedrals in Melbourne
. The Cathedral holds guided tours, which allows you to explore the wealth and beauty of this magnificent space. Likewise, you can also explore the cathedral on your own, as the cathedral is open every day for people and tourists to come for worshipping, praying or just visiting.
