Whilst it may have only cost tuppence to feed the birds, it usually costs £9.50 to enter St. Paul’s Cathedral! Compared to £5 to enter Salisbury Cathedral, this seemed a little steep. Fortunately, Southwest Trains have a 2 for 1 offer, which we duly used.

Admittedly, it seemed a little miserly considering that, unlike Salisbury, you get to climb to the top of the dome free of charge and you get a magnificent view of London.  Saying that, comparing Christopher Wren’s masterpiece to Richard Poore’s pride and joy is like comparing apples and oranges. They are both worth visiting, and I’d have difficulty in choosing a favourite!

Afterwards, we met up with some of the usual suspects to celebrate Abi and Ally’s birthday in Chiquitos. The company and conversation were great, although I’m not sure about the food!

Ah well, a good day none the less!
