Photography in London
I will be making my first trip to London soon and am wondering whether photography is permitted inside the following: Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, St. Paul's Cathedral, Windsor Castle, and other major sights. Does anyone know this from personal experience, or do you know of guides or websites that would say? (I have searched many guidebooks but most say nothing about where photos are and are not permitted.) Thanks!

To the best of my recollection, Tower of London, yes; St. Paul's, no. You didn't mention Kensington Palace but that was a "no", Madame Tussaud's, if you're into that, was a yes; Harrod's, no. Maybe others can fill in the rest. You will still get lots of great shots even if most of them are outdoors.
