Tuesday, St Paul's Cathedral and The National Gallery

London, United Kingdom
Tuesday, March 12, 2019
It was a cold and rainy day in London so I tried to stay indoors by visiting St Paul's Cathedral and the National Gallery.

St. Paul's is expensive to get into at 20 pounds. The most interesting parts were the Whispering Gallery which is a walkway inside the massive dome and the views of London from the roof. To fully enjoy the view from the roof it's best to visit on a clear sunny day if possible. The steps and narrow corridor up to those areas are a little claustrophobic and not designed for the oversized bodies of contemporary tourists.

Like most art galleries and museums in London the National Gallery is free to enter. The optional audio guides can be rented for five pounds. The National Gallery has some outstanding paintings and is well worth a visit. The highlights include the following works by famous artists:

Sunflowers by Vincent Van Gogh

The Water-Lily Pond by Monet

The Entombment by Michelangelo

Venus and Mars by Botticelli

The Leonardo Cartoon by Leonardo da Vinci

Bathers at Asnières by Georges Seurat

Whistlejacket by George Stubbs
