May, 23, 2013 Cathedrals of England

The cathedral is also a great tourist zone in London.
St. Paul’s cathedral has dominated the London skyline for 300 years. Thousands of people arrive in London to have a time of peace and pray in their lives. There is also an enormous inventory of pipes (10,266) for organs.
St. Paul's Cathedral has been damaged several times before. The only one we may remember was probably during The Blitz.
