If you do not love art, it does not really matter! You have to make room and go visit St. Paul's Cathedral. It is the most beautiful thing I have seen in London!

We weren't able to go to the top, which was a shame as it was a lovely day when we visited. We just took photos from the outside.

City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to
its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile

“The City” is one of London's most historic and
fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office
towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with
Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually
every era in between, including Christopher Wren's
