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.

The tour will focus on two of Bill Viola's works that were created especially for the cathedral: Martyrs and Mary. You'll get to spend some time in front of these modern-day altarpieces with a cathedral guide, and discuss how the sacred location makes a big different to how the art is perceived.

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

Craig’s review of St. Paul’s – “One of the things that I have always liked about St. Paul's Cathedral is the lousy piece of street planning outside the front door. As you walk up Ludgate Hill you'll expect to see the grand facade block off the top like a great barn door, but with the way the street curves over the brow all you get is three-quarters of the front. It's the worst piece of street planni… continued”

Craig’s review of Courtauld Gallery When people sit at home planning their itinerary they usually pencil in an hour or two for a gallery (they have to squeeze in a bit of culture), but it's usually the National or Tate Modern. That's enough art for most people. They don't want to overdose on it. But if you're… continued
Craig’s review of National Portrait Gallery The National Portrait Gallery is probably my favourite gallery in London because it appeals to history lovers as well as art lovers. It's all about the sitters, not the painters. Admire the people, not the paintings. But that's not to say that the paintings aren't good, beca… continued

Craig’s review of Tate Modern I promised myself that I would come to the Tate Modern with an open mind, but I know I'm going to laugh at the modern art. It's so bad, it's good. So you might want to take this review with a pinch of salt if you're an art lover. I do actually quite like art, believe it or… continued
