An Evening in St Paul’s Cathedral

London is one of those cities that never fails to amaze me, even as a Londoner. I would dread to be a tourist in London, I genuinely wouldn’t want to pack all the brilliant things that London offers into a few weeks let alone a few days!

I often feel like I take living in the capital for granted alot of the time, but I do love being a tourist in my own city, it reminds me every day what a beautiful city it is, with so much history.

I recently went to St Paul’s Cathedral lates for an evening in the beautiful cathedral. The cathedral opens its gates from 6-9pm for a small price, which it totally worth it. I can’t remember the last time I visited St Paul’s and I can’t think of a better way of spending my evenings. Walking through the cathedral gives you a feeling you’re in a place no less than the Vatican.

Some fun facts about St Paul’s Cathedral:
  1. St Paul’s is the highest point of London
  2. The present cathedral is the 4th of it’s kind, it’s predessor was burnt down during the Fire of London
  3. Famous celebrations have taken place in St Paul’s including Prince Charles and Diana’s wedding in 1981
  4. St Paul’s Dome is the 2nd largest dome in the world and can be climbed (only 529 steps high!) to get a surreal view of London
  5. In The Whispering Gallery, you can hear a whisper on the other side of the dome 112 feet away!
  6. Most importantly, several scenes of Harry Potter were shot inside the cathedral!
