Get a little Christmas inspiration in the St Paul's shop

With Christmas rapidly approaching and thoughts turning to gifts for loved ones, the shop at St Paul's Cathedral is ready to offer a little inspiration.

As well as its usual stock of books, CDs, prints and collectibles, a specially-selected Christmas range is now available both in-store and online.

The Cathedral's popular annual Christmas card this year features a painted image of the Cathedral called Winter Light at St Paul's, by artist Colin Ruffell. The greeting reads 'Joy and peace be yours at Christmas'. A pack of five with envelopes is £3.50.

To mark the end of what has been a fantastic Jubilee year, a limited edition cross has been designed, with a crown to mark this landmark year in the Queen's reign. The cross retails at £9.50.

The Cathedral's Jesus Chapel, commonly known as the American Chapel, serves as a space in which the American dead of the Second World War are remembered. The Jesus Chapel Bird Brooch is carved from a single tagua nut, a seed from a type of palm that grows in South American rainforests. The design is inspired by the intricate polished oak and lime wood carvings from the American Chapel, which faithfully depicts indigenous American birds, fruits and flowers.


St Paul's is one of the world's most recognisable buildings and a newly updated book by Ann Saunders shows off Wren's masterpiece in all its glory. With brand-new images (taken since the Cathedral's 15-year restoration and cleaning project came to an end), this book is beautifully illustrated with rare items from city and Cathedral archives, and glorious colour photography of today's building and its treasures. St Paul's Cathedral: 1,400 Years at the Heart of London tells of St Paul's fascinating history.
