This weekend marks the anniversary of the Great Fire of London, which happened 350 years ago. As a result, several events are taking place as well as art installations and walks. On Thursday, I went to Fire Garden in front of Tate Modern, and at the beginning of the week, I went on a Great Fire walking tour. Most of the events are happening this weekend. One of them is the projection of flames onto the dome of St. Paul's Cathedral. This was created by artist Martin Firrell.


The medieval cathedral of St. Paul's actually burned to the ground in 1666, along with the majority of old London and its timber-framed houses. A new cathedral rose from the ashes, created by Christopher Wren. This new cathedral is what we have today. Below are some of the photographs that I took of the illuminated flames on St. Paul's Cathedral.







The flames projected onto St. Paul's Cathedral will happen each evening at dusk until the end of the day on Sunday.
