Today we decide that we are going to take a walking tour with London Walking Tours to explore St. Paul's Cathedral. We take the tube and meet the group. I highly recommend the walking tours. They give great information as well as getting you into the Cathedral without having to wait in line.
We first explore Temple Bar from Paternoster Square. There is a lot of history surrounding it. To make a long story short it was owned a long time ago by an affluent family who threw parties in it after buying it from the city. It was later taken down and transported back to the city and not resides outside of St. Paul's Cathedral.
Now, onto St. Paul's.
We ended the tour by walking through the crypt below where you can hear mass and the choir above when they are in session. I had to stop by the gift shop and got some magnets of pics of the inside of the cathedral.
Later in the evening was my first experience at a British Pub. I dragged my roommate out and we went down the street and had a few drinks as well as dinner. It was so much fun!! The cider was awesome but I was in utter awe and amazement at the amount of people smoking when a pack of cigarettes cost over 5 Pounds (which is over $10 USD). It was such a good time though and we planned on hitting some other pubs in the coming days!!
