Join us for a tercentenary celebration of Sir Christopher Wren (1632–1723) – mathematician, astronomer and one of the country’s most distinguished architects.

Sir Christopher Wren’s legacy looms large over the skyline of the City of London. Here in the Square Mile you can find the many churches he designed, including St Paul’s Cathedral.

This year marks the 300th anniversary of Wren’s death. Across Wren300 we celebrate his inspirational life, achievements and architecture. You can enjoy a packed programme of events, activities and projects throughout the Square Mile and beyond. Something for everyone.

Who was Wren?

Find our about the life and legacy of Britian's greatest architect.

St Paul’s Cathedral in London is Wren’s masterpiece of design; it took 35 years to build. Wren was Surveyor-general to six English monarchs. His most famous buildings are at the centre of national life and ceremonials – they include Royal palaces, the Royal Hospital, Chelsea and 52 churches built after the great fire of London in 1666.
