AOL Travel Editor’s Review

An iconic dome punctuating the city skyline, St. Paul’s Cathedral was designed by Sir Christopher Wren and built between 1675 and 1710 after the previous church was destroyed in the Great Fire of London. However, there has been a cathedral dedicated to St. Paul here since 604AD (this is its fourth incarnation). You can climb up the dome and test out the Whispering Gallery. Stand on one side, while your companion stands at the other, talk close to the wall, and your words should carry 32 meters to the other side. The interior has hosted many of Britain’s most-notable ceremonies, such as the funerals of Lord Nelson and Sir Winston Churchill, and the marriage of Charles, Prince of Wales, to Lady Diana Spencer.

  Greatest view of the city from the top of the dome. It's quite a thrill to climb, but completely worth it.
