With a capacity of nearly 2,000, the hall is part of the largest performing arts complex in Europe. Home to the London Symphony Orchestra and the BBC Symphony Orchestra, it has stunning acoustics. There’s a great atmosphere here because you’re surrounded by people who are here to see all kinds of things: music, dance, theater, film. If you’re booking a ticket to see the LSO, make sure you check for the free pre-LSO concerts. These are performed by excellent young artists from the nearby Guildhall School of Music.

“🏛St Paul's Cathedral is an Anglican cathedral in London, United Kingdom, which, as the cathedral of the Bishop of London, serves as the mother church of the Diocese of London. It sits on Ludgate Hill at the highest point of the City of London and is a Grade I listed building. Its dedication to Paul the Apostle dates back to the original church on this site, founded in AD 604. The present cathedral, dating from the late 17th century, was designed in the English Baroque style by Sir Christopher Wren. Its construction, completed in Wren's lifetime, was part of a major rebuilding programme in the City after the Great Fire of London. The earlier Gothic cathedral (Old St Paul's Cathedral), largely destroyed in the Great Fire, was a central focus for medieval and early modern London, including Paul's walk and St Paul's Churchyard being the site of St Paul's Cross.”
