"The Whispering Dome" St. Paul's Cathedral Tip by krissyM

St. Paul's Cathedral, London: 288 reviews and 565 photos


Take the long walk up to the Whispering Dome. If you're there with a friend stand on opposites sides of the Dome. Facing each other (and NOT the wall) whisper to each other. You'll be able to hear each other perfectly! It really is quite fun! However, it people are talking to each other in the Dome it makes it quite hard to hear your buddy.

You will also quite clearly hear the attendands whispering "No pictures please!" at everybody trying to take pictures :)

You will see people whispering into the metal plates on the wall. The metal plates are not the to whisper into but were placed there for lasers to aim at while measuring the foundation.
