We had an early start on a cloudy Easter Monday. As it was a holiday in the UK, the tube was not crowded and the streets looked deserted. When we arrived at the cathedral, there was a long line of people at the ticket counter. Since we bought our tickets online, we only had to go through security check. We signed up for the 90-minute guided tour which made our visit to the cathedral more interesting. We did not plan on climbing up to the Golden Gallery, but we decided to just go for it since we were already there and we might not pass this way again. The climb was a bit hard, and we had to take a few breaks on the way up. After 528-steps, we made it to the Golden Gallery and were rewarded with a panoramic view of London. I am less keen on heights, and so I tightly held on the railings, took in the view, and forgot to take a photo.

Photography and filming is not allowed inside the cathedral. Here are some of my favorites:
