St. Paul’s Cathedral offers guided tours on the first Sunday of each month until December 2, 2012. We’re always keen to tell you about chances to tour buildings built in London ON the 1840s, especially buildings with connections to the Garrison.
The cornerstone of St. Paul’s Cathedral (472 Richmond St.) was laid in 1844, after St. Paul’s Church, a frame building constructed in 1834, caught fire, and burned to the ground. The narthex (lobby area) contains a monument to the 23rd Royal Welsh Fusiliers, “who fell in the Battle of Alma in the Crimea in 1854.” The transept contains the military colours of former London regiments.
