For history lovers or even just anyone who’s keen on seeing the insides of historical buildings, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

To commemorate World Book Day, Airbnb is opening St. Paul’s Cathedral for two people to spend the night.

The famous cathedral in England’s capital was designed by 17th-century architect Christopher Wren.

It hosted the funeral of Winston Churchill, and the wedding of the then Prince Charles and Lady Diana, and now it will, for only a night only, host two ordinary people.

For only R169, two guests will be allowed to spend the night in the cathedral’s very exclusive Hidden Library.

The two people will be the first people to officially sleep in the church since the famous St. Paul’s Watch slept there to protect the building during World War II.

There are some rules though. The stay can only be booked through Airbnb from 10:00 GMT on 12 March. Lucky guests will be selected on a first-come, first served basis and must be over 18 years of age.

The lucky guests will be met by the Dean of St. Paul’s who will take them on a tour before attending dinner at a nearby restaurant. And then they’re allowed access to all the books in the library

The iconic library includes everything from timeless classics to books that are still to be released to the public.
