Geocache Description:

A virtual cache on St. Paul's uppermost gallery.

*NOTE: THERE IS A FEE FOR ENTERING ST. PAULS.*
ALSO: THE UPPER GALLERIES ARE OFTEN CLOSED FOR BUILDING WORKS SO ANY PHOTO FROM ST. PAULS WILL COUNT AS A FIND.

There is a fee to enter St. Paul's. The only negative comments I ever get about this cache is about the fee to get in. Check st. Paul's website for days when the entry is reduced or free: (visit link)
Most people think its worth it once they've been up there.

To count this cache, you must send me a picture (or link to a picture) of St. Paul's from the Golden Gallery. Recent construction may restrict you to the whispering gallery, or even outside. To reach the top you must be fit enough to climb a lot of stairs! But not all at once, there are some narrow landings. You can get a great shot of the river from up there. Its a view worth the effort, I assure you! Check the gallery for previous visitor's awesome shots.

I've been to St. Paul's several times now, but no one I know has been to the top of the dome. Be sure to have a good look around the inside of the dome, its a very different perspective than from the church floor. AND since you're already that high up, why not go the rest of the way and claim this cache?

They don't allow photos inside the Cathedral, but on top its OK. I wouldn't put even a micro-cache in someone's church, so a virtual cache it is.

This is serious bragging rights for those willing to make the climb thru narrow passages, up stone and metal stairs and out onto the gallery. There are rails and places to rest, so you needn't make it all in one push. I noticed some odd readings on the elevation here, and it may help to move to different corners to get a good signal lock. The mobile phone reception is excellent here ;)
