London Day 6: St. Paul’s Cathedral – Part 2


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.

These were the narrow spiral stairways that Ben did not like.

The towers were not in the original design but added in 1707 when Wren was 75 years old.
