We made sure to visit Saint Paul's Cathedral, it was just one of many wonderful things we did that week. I knew from my extensive prereading that this is the 5th Saint Paul's to stand on the site. The previous four having burnt down.
First glimpses are always exciting.
London does grand quite well.
You have to pay 17 pounds to enter, and then they don't want you to take photos. Humph. Quite a common scenario in London actually. It's dumb. It's beautiful and fascinating inside, and people want to share it with their friends, which will, in turn make more people want to go and pay their £17. We timed our visit to end with Evensong, which was quite delightful.
