The seats along the front of it seem to be a popular picnic spot which made reading the emotion a bit awkward.
So perhaps visiting outside of the main lunchtime period would be better.
It is a funny sort of place not quite protected enough from time with the modern flats and double glazing just above it. It partly seemed a shame but also added to its draw and quirkiness.
If you go to St Paul's take the time to have a walk out to this, and spend just 5 minutes having a quick look or sit and eat your sandwiches here instead of on the steps of St Pauls with the crowds.
It'll be worth it.
Oh and if you are wondering, the building on one side belonged to the GPO and a lot of postmen had their lunch here, hence the name.
