Go to the top of Westminster Cathedral tower

In Victoria, just a few minutes walk from Westminster Abbey, is Westminster Cathedral, the largest Roman Catholic church in England and the seat of the Catholic Archbishop of Westminster, Cormac Cardinal Murphy-O'Connor.

Keeping watch over the Neo-Byzantine Cathedral is a 273 ft tower, which is dedicated to St Edward the Confessor. From a four-sided viewing gallery at the top there are views out across Central London, and you can access them by a lift which is open daily from 9.30am to 12.30pm and 1pm to 5pm April to November and 9am to 5pm December to March.

For more information visit the website at http://www.westminstercathedral.org.uk/art/art_tower.html, or to learn more about the cathedral visit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Westminster_Cathedral.
