St. Paul's Cathedral bells

Jump to last reply

The last time I was in London I went to St. Paul's Cathedral for a "goodbye" visit on my last evening there, which was 7:00 p.m. on a Monday. There didn't seem to be anything going on in the cathedral at that time, but as I was standing at the bottom of the stairs, the bells suddenly started ringing and it went on for 15 minutes. I was thrilled and thunderstruck to get that "sendoff" before flying back to the U.S. the next day. I haven't been able to find out why the bells rang in that way on a Monday at that time of day. Their website says they do it three times every Sunday but this was a Monday evening. Does anyone know what this could be? It was bell ringing of the kind you hear on newscasts of royal weddings, coronations, etc. at Westminster Abbey. Full-out "tintinabulation of the bells, bells, bells." I was almost the only person in the area at that time, which made it even more special, and it was as if I had been given a parting gift.
