In the background, you can see St Paul’s Cathedral. Its cupola is very special: go up there with a friend. Ask your friend to put his/her ear against the wall of the cupola. Then go to the other side and whisper against the wall. Your friend will hear every word you whisper, although you are 34 m apart. This is why the cupola of St Paul’s Cathedral is also called Whispering Gallery.
