Wandered round the cathedral while we were waiting for the 10am service. It is a very interesting building and has wonderful stained glass windows.

Cathedral of St.Paul are both in London and in Wellington. I immediately understood why Wellington Cathedral is dedicated to St. Paul. Then I realized that it was a relationship with London, which is also the main church of St. Paul's Cathedral.
