Neighbourhood: City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “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 glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.

We are in the search for Harry Potter Scene Locations and it happens that St Paul’s Cathedral is in front of the Jubillee Bridge. It has a unique structure and It is beautiful.

Walk to footsteps of HRH Diana

I used my London Pass to get in on my trip during July 2019. For more than 1,400 years, a Cathedral dedicated to St Paul has stood at the highest point in the City. The present Cathedral is the masterpiece of Britain's most famous architect Sir Christopher Wren.

The gallery was closed during my excursion and I did use the audio tour for assistance through the cathedral. The cafe downstairs was great, and so was the food. The dome ceiling is a must-see.

My favourite place in London. Build the best in London, I can view this cathedral every day. Both inside and outside of the cathedral is a work of art. I notice a different detail every time I go.

St Paul’s Cathedral has a rich and tumultuous history.
Aug. 2020
One of the most iconic buildings in London, you can’t quite grasp the size of this historical building until you’re standing beside it. If you’re out exercising during this lock-down stop for a moment, have a seat and feel the history.

A place for reflection and inspiration
Nov. 2020 • Solo
Outside visiting times for tourists the cathedral is a mystic place for reflection and inspiration, as it should be. Recommended the Sunday Organ Recitals which offer the possibility to listen to the marvellous church organ played by master organists from around the country.
