The centre of my London

St Pauls Cathedral London

London has many landmarks, from Big Ben to Tower Bridge and everything in-between. But for me, nothing says London more than St Paul’s cathedral.

The Cathedral was designed by Christopher Wren as a focal point for Londoners after the Great Fire of London. Construction took years (and some inventive taxes to pay for it) finally being consecrated in 1708.

For me it is not just a building. It represents all that London is, but is sometimes too reticent to say. St Paul’s stayed standing throughout WW2, its grand, its beautiful and is a calm spot amongst the chaos.

I consider myself incredibly lucky that I can sit on the steps of this majestic beast every day while I eat my lunch.
