St. Paul’s Cathedral is #4 in our London Bucket List

To coincide with the Royal Academy of Art's Bill Viola and Michelangelo exhibition that is running until the 31st March, St. Paul's will be putting on their own special art tour around the cathedral.

Other artworks on the tour include pieces by William Holman Hunt, Gerry Judah and Hughie O'Donoghue.
