"St. Paul's" St. Paul's Cathedral Tip by Dabs
St. Paul's Cathedral, London: 289 reviews and 570 photos
St. Paul's is the second largest cathedral in the world behind St. Peter's in Rome. Although a cathedral has been on this site for 1,400 years, the present building, designed by Christopher Wren, was started in 1675 and took 35 years to build.
The visit to St. Paul's includes a trip to the top with a stop at the Whispering Gallery on the interior of the cathedral and a couple more levels of outside viewing. There are 530 steps in total to the top but it didn't seem so bad being broken up into 3 stages.
It is currently under scaffolding as the cathedral is undergoing renovations both on the exterior and interior. Photography is not allowed on the inside although you can take pictures from the outside galleries. It's almost impossible to get a decent shot of the exterior because of the surrounding buildings and scaffolding so I'm putting in a shot I took from the top.
