10 St Paul's Cathedral
Sir Christopher Wren's architectural masterpiece has survived not only 300 years of tumultuous London history, including being bombed – twice – in the blitz, but also the wear and tear of thousands upon thousands of visitors, from the UK and, surely, most of the other countries on Earth.
For some people the beauty of Wren's domed design is the pull; for others, its religious significance; and, for others still, the cathedral as the site of such royal occasions as the marriage of Prince Charles and Lady Diana.
Visiting this – the 10th most popular attraction in the UK – attracts a charge for non-worshipers. More info: StPauls.co.uk
