If you are ever in London and you appreciate history, visit St.Paul's and West Minister. You can't go wrong with either church. The decor and architect has to be seen in person. St. Paul's backdrop has been used in countless movies. I would allow yourself...More

You need to see this. Very beautiful. You have to go to the top of the dome. Well worth every step, and there are lots of them. Fantastic views from the top and within.

The weather was lovely to show off this sublime exterior. Sadly I was unable to visit inside as the cost of £80 was rather steep fir the four of us. My own Cathedral City is free.

“The City” is one of London's most historic and

every era in between, including Christopher Wren's
