21: St. Paul's Cathedral

St. Paul's CathedralThe dome of St. Paul's is said to be the second largest in the world after St. Peter's in Rome but the construction is very different - St. Paul's has a wooden dome covered with lead, while St. Peter's is of stone and brick. The ingenious part of Wren's dome is the hidden internal structure that is necessary to support the heavy lantern that sits on the top. The bus swings past the front of the cathedral which is the main ceremonial entrance. Unusually for a church, there is an admission charge to go inside.
