Wow. St Paul’s Cathedral is stunning. Beautiful. The roof is amazing and the architecture isn’t too bad.

Breathtaking architecture with a wonderful history and atmosphere. Shop has an interesting range of goods on offer and afternoon tea in the tea room rounded off a really pleasant afternoon and experience.

Cathedral is spectacular, architecture, artwork and serenity of the place of worship, despite the throngs of tourists. Be prepared with lots of energy if you want to walk up to the top of central dome - there are 3 levels you can climb up to.

Entrance hall, widely surrounded gods, Chapel, beautiful stained glass, ceilings, we can feel celebreting by gods, echoed Saint hymn. Spiral Upstairs, underground, whispering place, all well organized with historical tech. On the top, we can overlook city of bank area, under looking skyscrapers. 壮大な歴史のある建物で、シティ代表するだけでくイギリスの最も有名な観光名所であり今もロンドン住民に親しまれている大聖堂です。
