The exterior of St. Paul's cathedral, around the back. There are so many ornate details, you have to separate them out to appreciate each one. The pigeons seem to become part of the artwork.

Queen Victoria seems to watch over the comings and goings on Ludgate Hill, from her perch in front of St. Paul's Cathedral.

There are so many clocks in London.
There are 311 steps in the monument to the 1966 Great Fire of London, which destroyed much of the city.
