Reasons for trip

I visited St Paul’s Cathedral when I was a teenager and have not been again until Monday 25th April this year. Why did I wait so long? It is a very beautiful building and I still wonder how it was built without modern machinery. I went with two friends. We used the 2 for 1 admission and an on-line ticket purchase for one ticket which must be bought at least a day in advance to receive discount. We all thought afterwards that had we paid the full price it would still have been worth every pound.

We choose the shorter 45 minute free conducted tour, which was given by a volunteer, He was surprised when we said we came from Sussex, as he rarely had British visitors.The others in our group were all American. We took our time, absorbing all the history and beauty and spent many hours there.

The toilets are not available in St. Paul’s at present but are just outside, well signposted and clean and tidy the day we went.

We climbed up to the whispering gallery and I ventured further to the Stone Gallery, but unfortunately was not rewarded for my efforts as when I stepped outside there was a sudden heavy shower and I could not enjoy the view!!

We enjoyed refreshing tea and coffee in the cafe, which was not overpriced.
If you are in London, St Paul’s Cathedral is well worth a visit. The taking of photographs and videos is not allowed inside the Cathedral.
