Architectural wonders right on our doorstep

Architectural wonders

From historic markets and architecture steeped in tradition, to cutting edge modern art and trailblazing bars and restaurants, there’s a plethora of riches right on our doorstep. Designed by Christopher Wren, St Paul’s Cathedral is one of the most instantly recognisable buildings in London, and its famous dome has dominated the skyline for centuries. It has hosted royal weddings, orchestral performances and intellectual debates. The free-to-attend daily services are open to all, and offer a chance to hear the inspiring voices of the Cathedral choir and other talented musicians. Those visiting to sightsee can walk in the footsteps of royalty and political leaders, explore the Crypt or scale the Dome and enjoy unrivalled views across London. Similarly, Westminster Abbey is a royal church, one of England’s oldest examples of gothic architecture and World Heritage Site with over a thousand years of history.

Why not take a look at two other iconic landmarks, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, while you’re in the area? A short walk away near London Bridge, Borough Market is a bustling cornucopia of incredible international produce, with vendors selling everything you could possibly imagine, from artisanal pasta, to fresh vegetables, to herbs, spices and oils. The air is an incredible mix of smells from the various hot food stalls where you can pick up lunch, or enjoy one of the area’s brilliant restaurants, wine bars and pubs. Take a walk along the river to the Tate Modern where you can see the best of modern art and jaw-dropping exhibitions from some of the world’s best and most innovative artists, including Pablo Picasso, Yayoi Kusama and Henry Matisse. The Turbine Hall is in itself a striking piece of design, and much of the gallery is free to explore. It’s easy to lose hours taking in everything on display, and still leave feeling like there’s more to discover.
