St Paul's Cathedral Highlights

 

Some of the must see areas of this magnificent Cathedral

 

The Nave

  • The Nave is the central section from the ceremonial Great West Door to the Dome.
  • Width of the Nave 121ft (37m)
  • In the North Aisle on the left are the2 Chapels of All Souls & St Dunstan along with the Wellington monument.  The victorious commander at the Battle of Waterloo against Napoleon in 1815.
  • In the South Aisle on the opposite side are the 2 Chapels of St Michael and St George

 

The South Transept

  • The South Transept is the right central short arm leading from under the Dome.
  • The location of 3 Memorials to:
    • Lord Nelson our greatest Naval Admiral who defeated the French at the Battle of Trafalgar 1805.
    • Captain Robert Scott the explorer who reached the South Pole and found that he had been beaten to the Pole by Amundsen just over a month earlier. Scott & his party died before reaching the final fuel & food dump on the return journey.

 

The Quire

  • The quire is the continuation of the Nave beyond the Dome. It's location for the
    • Choir and seating area for clergy. There is magnificent wood carved in this area.
    • The Grand Organ with 7,189 pipes, five keyboards and 138 organ stops..
    • The Bishop's throne
    • The High Altar was replaced after bomb damage in World War II and is constructed from Carved Oak & Marble
    • The Apse is beyond the High Altar & location of the Jesus Chapel that is dedicated to American Service Personnel who died in World War II in the UK

 

 

The Dome

  • The Dome is one of the largest Cathedral domes in the world, and consists of a dome & lantern. Ensure you look up into the dome from ground level.
  • The dome is far more complicated than it looks. A clue to this is seen when comparing the internal measurements with the external measurements
    External Diameter 112ft (34m)    Internal Diameter 102ft (31m)
    External Height      278ft (85m)    Internal Height    225ft (68m)
    The reason - There are 3 domes stacked like russian dolls one inside the other.
    • The External dome that can be viewed from the street. This dome is thin and constructed mainly of wood
    • The Conical Dome takes most of the weight, arund 700 tons, of the Lantern above the outer dome
      • Between the External dome & the Conical dome  is a network of wooden beams that support the outer dome. Also in this space are the stairs leading to the golden Gallery.
    • The Inner hemispherical dome that can be viewed from the Cathedral floor & Whispering Gallery.
    • Between these 2 domes is the brick structural Conical dome that is virtually invisible and supports the weight of the Lantern, golden gallery & Cross
  • The sight looking up into the dome from either the Cathedral Floor or Whispering Gallery is mind numbing as you view the exquisite awe inspiring painted murals depicting the life of Saint Paul.
  • Visitors can climb the dome to the:

 

Whispering Gallery

  • The Whispering Gallery if for the fit because you have to climb 257 steps to a height of 30 metres above the Cathedral floor.
  • The views are enough to make the climb, but the Whispering Gallery has amazing acoustics. Whisper facing the wall and you can be heard on the other side of the gallery.

 

Stone Gallery

  • The Stone Gallery encircles  the bottom of the dome on the outside, giving amazing views
  • 376 Steps and a height of  173 feet (53 metres) above the Cathedral floor.

 

 

Golden Gallery

  • The golden gallery is on top of the dome & encircles the lantern,
  • 280 feet (85 metres) high and a staggering 528 steps
  • This is the highest point that the public can now go. When I first visited St Paul's as a child I went higher, through the ball to right underneath the Cross. The last bit could only be reached by one person at a time by climbing a builders ladder.

 

Ball & Cross

  • The Ball is 6 feet (almost 2 metres) in diameter and can hold 10 people.
  • The height of Ball & Cross is 23 feet (just over 7 metres) & weight of 7 tonnes.

 

The Crypt

  • The Crypt are the cellars / basement to the Cathedral
  • The location of the following Tombs:
    • Nelson's Tomb, located directly beneath the Dome's centre.
    • Wellington Tomb.
    • Sir Christopher Wren Tomb , St Paul's architect
  • The OBE Chapel (Order of the British Empire)
  • Oculus: an eye into St Paul’s, This new Exhibition of 2700 films depicts 1400 years of history
