After watching the Lord Mayor’s Show on Saturday, Michael and I went into St. Paul’s Cathedral. As part of Saturday’s celebration, entry was free.
I convinced Michael to climb the steps to the dome. First we reached the Whispering Gallery, where a whisper against the wall at one end of the gallery can be heard clearly around the dome at the other side.
Then we continued up another set of narrower stairs to reach the exterior walkway. We had views all around London.
Here’s one panorama looking to the east of St. Paul’s. The building marked with an arrow is the Broadgate Tower, where Michael’s firm is located.
And finally, a photo looking down on the Occupy London protesters. You can see the empty Paternoster Square where the London Stock Market is located.
