St Paul's Cathedral

(3 votes, average 2.67 out of 5)

ImageOne of the most distinctive features in the London Skyline, the dome of St Paul’s Cathedral is
one the largest in the world. Designed by Sir Christopher Wren and built in English Baroque style, this 17th century cathedral is the seat of the Bishop of London. The cathedral is home to many plaques, carvings, statues, memorials and tombs of prominent British figures such as Sir Edwin Lutyens, Sir Winston Churchill and Florence Nightingale among others. 
The inside of the dome, also known as the Whispering Gallery owing to its amazing acoustics, is vividly frescoed with the life of St Paul. Visitors can climb up to the two outdoor galleries above the Whispering Gallery to enjoy a magnificent view of the city of London.
