With its vast dome towering over Ludgate Hill, St Paul’s Cathedral is certainly one of London’s most majestic buildings. Standing tall for over 300 years, it still manages to dominate the iconic London skyline, so a trip to this sacred site is a must when visiting the capital. Once inside, you’ll be stunned by the sheer beauty and grandeur of the interior. Take a trip down to the crypts, the largest in Europe, where British legends like Lord Admiral Nelson, the Duke of Wellington and the architect of the cathedral himself, Sir Christopher Wren are buried. Then climb to the Whispering Gallery for a unique acoustic experience and if you aren’t afraid of heights, climb a further 270 steps to the Golden Gallery. Here you’ll be rewarded with spectacular views over the River Thames, Tate Modern, and Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre.
