One cannot imagine how this place was built back in the 1600s. The architecture is amazing. Wren's masterpiece. A little tough if you're not in great physical shape and want to take the steps up to the top of the Cathedral or even up a...More

A tour through the cathedral should be on your must-to-do list of activities in London. It is located right next to a bus station and the tunnel is also at a walking distance. Wear comfortable shoes because you may have to walk up the steps...More
