"After being set the task of redesigning St Paul's Cathedral in 1669, Sir Christopher Wren originally designed the dome with a pineapple on the top. Although it was never instated, there are, however, two on top of the western towers."

When walking across stunning Millennium Bridge, it always makes me feel like a tourist in my own city.

EC2V quote

I love the buzz of the City at dusk and the stunning architecture along the cityscape. It really makes me excited to live in London.

It is awe inspiring when you stop and think of all the history and events that have occurred right where you are standing beside The Golden Hind...
