St Paul's Cathedral - from the top

January 30, 2018

As you know, I LOVE this place. Magnificent and majestic, but today it was especially wonderful. Early on a winter morning, bright sunshine streaming through a pretty empty church; very spiritual.

And then we climbed 528 steps to the very top, up at the Golden Gallery. Wonderful views across town and at least 50% of my gym workout completed. 

 

The picture below is looking through a window from the very centre of the dome down onto the ground below. Around 300 feet I reckon, although the actual full height of the dome is 365 feet. Wren was a master mathematician, loved symmetry and the perfection of numbers.
