I wish I could have spent more time at St. Paul’s Cathedral, but by the time I arrived, it was about 15 minutes before closing. I paid the 20 pounds and went to climb the stairs to the top, or as close to the top as I could get. The final set of stairs had a pretty full line, so I decided to spend the time snapping some pictures of the city from the level I was at and headed quickly to the basement and the graves.

The Cathedral survived the bombing of London, damaged heavily, but survived to provide a location for the funeral services for Winston Churchill and Margaret Thatcher. It is also where Charles and Diana were married.
