City Santa Run - 2000 santas this year. I ran with a cheesy christmas playlist going. Made it round in a slow time after being sent the wrong way and doing 2 massive extra loops. I was a slightly grumpy santa crossing the line as this was first run since last week as I've had flu and I was actually doing pretty good there were only 2 other females in front of me until I went wrong. Ah well!! #hohoho#merrychristmas , a positive I made it round without too much discomfort, flu is on it's way out. #ldnrunner#runner , love #santarun#westminster#thecity#stpauls
This famous cathedral is more resilient than you think 💪⠀
From the Great Fire of London to issues in engineering, the London landmark hasn't always had the best of luck. Almost a century ago, a grand plan was devised to restore it to the glorious structure you see today. The new exhibition at @stpaulscathedrallondon takes you on the inspiring journey of its reconstruction and will go on until May 24th, 2020.⠀
⠀ @londonist_com says: "Don’t miss the opportunity to catch the special exhibition all about the Great Restoration of the 1920s, compiled from lesser-known stories and the Cathedral’s own archive materials."⠀

Esplêndida é a palavra que usaria para descrever a Catedral de São Paulo.
A atual catedral é do século XVII e foi arquitetada por Christopher Wren. Mas antes dessa houveram outras no mesmo local. Praticamente sagrado, pois ali já foi lugar de um dólmen (datados de a.C.!) e um templo grego. Em 604 d.C foi construída, bem ali, a primeira igreja da Inglaterra feita de madeira.
O local é tão importante que foi palco de inúmeros momentos importantes como:
- Funeral de Winston Churchill e Margaret Tatcher
- As celebrações dos jubileus das Rainhas Victoria e Elizabeth II
- O casamento do Príncipe Charles e Diana
E por ser tão importante já foi alvo de inúmeras bombas. Uma delas tinha poder para destruir completamente a catedral! 😥 Que tenso né? Então não deixe de visitar a St. Paul’s, aberta de segunda a sábado das 8h30 às 16h30!

————————————————————————Splendid is the word I would use to describe St. Paul's Cathedral.
The present cathedral is from the 17th century and was designed by Christopher Wren. But before there were others in the same place. Pratically sacred, as it was once the site of a dolmen (dated BC)! And a Greek temple. In 604 AD, was built, right there, the first church of England made out of wood.
The place is so important that it was the scene of numerous important moments such as:
- Funeral of Winston Churchill and Margaret Tatcher
- The Jubilee Celebrations of Queen Victoria and Elizabeth II
- The wedding of Prince Charles and Diana
And because it is so important, it has been the target of countless bombs. One of them had the power to completely destroy the cathedral! 😥 So be sure to visit St. Paul’s, open Monday to Saturday from 8:30am to 4:30pm!
• Adult £ 20 at sight / £ 17 online
• Students and 60+ £ 17.50 at sight / £ 15 online

NOTE: Whispering Gallery is closed until Easter 2020.
The dome of St Paul's is currently being illuminated each evening with William Blake's final work, Ancient of Days. He always wanted his works to be writ large in religious buildings, so this is a fitting tribute.
Catch it tonight (Saturday) or tomorrow. 4.30pm-9pm.
We particularly love the way the beard and hair move.
St Paul's looks breathtaking covered in these thought-provoking illuminations.
Where Light Falls comprises four nights of images being projected onto Wren's iconic cathedral. The images tell the story of the people who fought tirelessly to save the Cathedral during the second world war.
The show is on every evening until Sunday 27 October.
