St Pauls Cathedral in London

St Paul's Cathedral is dedicated to Paul the Apostle. It was the tallest building in London until 1962. The dome of the cathedral is an intrinsic part of the London skyline. You can climb the dome to the Whispering gallery - where a whisper from one side can be heard up to 100 feet away. If you climb further up to the Golden gallery which is at the very top of the dome, you can enjoy awesome panoramic views of the London city.

There are number of chapels at St Pauls. The Chapel of All Souls, Chapel of St Dunstan, Chapel of St Michael & St George, the Middlesex Chapel and the American Memorial Chapel are all located on the cathedral floor. The Knights Bachelor Chapel and the OBE Chapel can be found in the crypt.

The marriage of Charles, Prince of Wales, and Lady Diana Spencer was conducted at this cathedral.
