20: Ludgate Hill leading to St.Pauls

Ludgate HillDown Fleet Street to the cross-roads at Ludgate Circus and straight ahead, up Ludgate Hill, is our first view of St Paul's cathedral. The dome, the upper drum and the peristyle (with the columns) are visible from here, but not much below the roofline. There is a view protection policy in place these days called 'St Paul's Heights'. This imposes planning restrictions on any new developments in order to protect the existing views of the cathedral from all directions.
