St. Paul’s Cathedral

What an epic building and experience. I feel like I need to preface this experience by explaining that I come from a small town that is the same age as London’s tube system. The oldest building is a tiney wooden Bastian.  The tallest building is a functional but rather unappealing 16 floor apartment building.
There are a handful of oldish churches but nothing, I assure you absolutely nothing as astounding as St Paul’s.  Just walking past the structure a few days before i had planned to go in, gave me a sense of anxiety.
I approached from an awkward side and passed through this little garden…

The bricks…

And looking up…

I took alot of pictures at St Paul’s. Too many for one post. I did go all the way to the top…

By the time I was done I was exhausted but I could have gone to the clock tower too

Maybe on another visit…

I can’t even beleive how huge this building is. 
I followed the rules out of respect and didn’t take any pictures inside.
Definitely a place I would like to return to. 
The crypt I would avoid next time tho.

I will admit to spending my first few minutes in the small chapel praying for world peace. What else does one do in a church that has seen so many prayers already.

    Great post. Those photos alone look epic, but I know they don’t come close to capturing how epic it is to stand there marveling at its grandeur.
