First, take some time to explore St Paul’s cathedral itself, the altar is magnificent and particularly impressive. You can also go downstairs to visit the crypt before taking a deep breath and start your ascent towards the Golden Galley located 111 meters above the ground.
Your first stop will be the Whispering Gallery, after 267 steps. The opportunity to take a break (well, not for us, because it was closed). You will then reach the Stone Gallery after 376 steps, the first step for beautiful pictures. Finally, the Golden Gallery awaits you for a magnificent view of London.
As with any good visit to a tourist spot, we strongly recommend that you avoid late morning and afternoon if you want to be able to enjoy it without feeling that it is as crowded as the subway.
