After the guided tour, I went on to climb up to the Dome. Ben had done that before and he hated the narrow stairways up.
He dropped me at the first level and waited there while I climbed up by myself. It was a windy day.
View of the Millennium Bridge from St. Paul’s Cathedral with Tate Modern at the south end.
These were the narrow spiral stairways that Ben did not like.
View of the towers with clocks from the dome.
The towers were not in the original design but added in 1707 when Wren was 75 years old.
Another view from the dome with London Eye in sight.
Another dome structure.
Modern high rise view.
The Monument to the Great Fire of London of 1666.
