Finally made it up to the top of Great St. Mary’s for this stellar bird’s-eye view of the city. I walk by the entrance to the tower so often, but I always assumed it was nothing more than a tourist trap until people started telling me, “No, you *have* to go.” Yes, you do have to go. It’s incredible and absolutely worth the £4 fee and the gazillion steps to the top.
When we visited, there was a violin concert at the altar, just beautiful. I may return simply for that. But regardless, I will be back here next time I have a visitor from out-of-town.
