Whispering sweet nothings in The Whispering Gallery

If you're at that lovely point in your relationship where dates are filled with the whisperings of sweet nothings, then St Paul's Cathedral has a magical secret up its sleeve that might interest you.

The Whispering Gallery is so-called because a surprising quirk in its acoustic architecture means that someone whispering on one side of its dome can be clearly heard by someone standing on the other side of the gallery, some 42 metres away. Can you imagine a more memorable way to whisper that first 'I love you' or even hear a surprise marriage proposal?

Standing 30 metres above the cathedral's floor, the Whispering Gallery is reached by climbing 259 steps. There you'll have your chance to rest before another 53 steps leads you to the stone terrace with its commanding views of the gloriously romantic London skyline. Pure joy!
