St Paul's, London's City Cathedral

St Paul's, London's city cathedral was designed by Sir Christopher Wren  and work was started 9 years after the medieval church had been burnt down in the Great Fire. The cathedral has been extensively restored in recent years. The exterior has had the grime of the ages removed, and clear glass (as specified in Wren's original design) has replaced the wartime bomb damaged stained glass

You can climb up in to the Whispering gallery in the dome, where a whisper at one side carries right round the dome. Then up to the Stone Gallery giving a view over the city, and up to the Golden Gallery at the top of the dome.

The crypt is equally impressive, with the tombs of both Nelson and Wellington (complete with the 18ton carriage that took his body to the cathedral in 1852)
