Field Notes

April 19th, 2017

St Paul’s Cathedral, Ludgate Hill, London

Taken from the Roof Terrace at One New Change. Feels like a scene from Assassin’s Creed up here. I need to re-discover the City I was born in. It will be a personal project, starting from the rise of London from its genesis in AD 43 when the Romans invaded Britain. It may take a few years…

St Paul’s was built in AD 604, it’s one of the most recognisable landmarks of London. Re-designed by Sir Christopher Wren in the 17th century after the Great Fire of London in 1666.

State funerals of The Duke of Wellington, Sir Winston Churchill as well as the wedding of HRH Prince Charles and Lady Diana have all taken place here. The terrace is open from 6am to midnight along with Madison Restaurant & Bar

It’s in the heart of London’s old banking and insurance district. So expect city suits enjoying cocktails and tapas before taking the last train home. If you’re visiting whilst on vacation, its best to purchase tickets from the Official St Paul’s Cathedral Website to take a tour inside. Its awe inspiring.
