On the outside, St Paul's resembles almost any state capitol building in America. The plainness of its exterior hints very little of the explosion of colors within, where sadly the officials do not allow photography. You might amble around the exterior and wander through St Paul's Churchyard or observe the dome from Paternoster Row. Once you enter, you'll still march through a plain nave before the transepts, the dome and the altar overwhelm everything you've ever seen.

Address: St. Paul's Churchyard, London EC4M 8AD
