This famous old cathedral is a little hard to find but it is just a couple blocks from the Victoria train station or underground station. It is what we were told to call the layer cake kind of architecture. Inside are some of the most...More

up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are
