St Paul's Cathedral is one of the best known landmarks in London and a major tourist attraction. Based on the western edge of the City of London, it has been the site of anti-capitalist protests with occupation of the area in front of the cathedral by a tent village. It is as close to the London Stock Exchange, situated just north of the Cathedral, that the protesters have been able to get. The land around the stock exchange itself has been sealed off and closed to the public.
Within the village are various sectors and an information tent open to the public, named the Occupy London University, which contains all kinds of information about the reason for the protest and occupation, contacts and a daily list of events and meetings being held.
