St Paul’s Cathedral

This afternoon, we went to St Paul’s Cathedral with my son.  It turns out that I am slightly afraid of heights, although I suspect that this is made much worse when it is windy (which it always is up there, it’s an incredibly tall building).

We climbed to the top of this

I wasn’t the only one – we passed an American lady who was doing her best to get up a spiral staircase.  Thankfully, my son is indifferent to heights and climbed up the stairs without any complaints.

Expect to climb LOADS of these

When you are at the top, you can see all over London.  I think there are some restrictions so that people don’t build anything taller than St Paul’s but these may have eased off a bit.

It's very high

I didn’t take any photos inside St Paul’s itself because they tell you not to (and it seems a bit tacky inside a church).  The church itself is lovely and in the crypt you can see Nelson‘s tomb.  My son preferred the shortbread from the cafe though.
