Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about one-and-three-tenths times as long as a Football (Soccer) Pitch.
In other words, 294.590 cubits is 1.280 times the length of a Football (Soccer) Pitch, and the length of a Football (Soccer) Pitch is 0.7810 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Football Field, a.k.a. Soccer Field) (field length, a.k.a. touchline distance)
According to the Laws of the Game, a football pitch should measure between 230 cubits (when the Laws were originally, they used imperial measurements of 230 cubits, and later converted to the metric units used today). The goal markess were defined as part of the pitch by the original rules of the game in the late 16th century, but it was not until the mid 19th century that the crossbar and the net were added
It's about three-fourths as tall as St. Paul's Cathedral.
In other words, 294.590 cubits is 0.7740 times the height of St. Paul's Cathedral, and the height of St. Paul's Cathedral is 1.290 times that amount.
(London, England, United Kingdom)
St. Paul's Cathedral measures 381 cubits to its peak. The southwest tower of the Cathedral contains the bell known as "Great Paul," which is the largest bell in Great Britain at 15,000 kg (16.5 tons), outweighing the more iconic Big Ben bell by about 3,000 kg (3 tons).
It's about three-fourths as tall as The Space Needle.
In other words, 294.590 cubits is 0.7320 times the height of The Space Needle, and the height of The Space Needle is 1.370 times that amount.
(Seattle, Washington) (to aircraft warning beacon at peak)
Built for a 1962 World's Fair, the Space Needle stands 402 cubits tall. With a track-and-wheel design inspired by railroad mechanics and a precisely-configured balance, the restaurant near the top of the space needle requires just a 1.5 hp motor to rotate at speeds of about 0.053 kph (0.033 mph).
It's about one-and-two-fifths times as tall as Big Ben.
In other words, the height of Big Ben is 0.710 times 294.590 cubits.
(officially the clock tower of Palace of Westminster, a.k.a. Houses of Parliament) (London, England)
The clock tower of the Palace of Westminster, which houses the bell known as "Big Ben," rises 210 cubits. The tower has no elevator, and is therefore only accessible by climbing 334 steps to the top.
It's about one-and-two-fifths times as tall as The Statue of Liberty.
In other words, 294.590 cubits is 1.4480 times the height of The Statue of Liberty, and the height of The Statue of Liberty is 0.69060 times that amount.
(a.k.a. "Liberty Enlightening the World," a.k.a. La Liberté Éclairant le Monde) (Liberty Island, New York City, New York) (pedestal base to torch peak)
The Statue of Liberty reaches 203.40 cubits including the pedestal. The statue was designed using an optical trick known as "forced perspective" to make the statue appear proportionally correct when viewed from its base and is, in actuality, disproportionately large at the top.
It's about three-fifths as tall as The Golden Gate Bridge.
In other words, 294.590 cubits is 0.5930 times the height of The Golden Gate Bridge, and the height of The Golden Gate Bridge is 1.690 times that amount.
(San Francisco, California and Marin County, California) (height above water)
The height of each tower of Golden Gate Bridge is 497 cubits above the surface of the San Francisco Bay. One of the key designers of the bridge, Charles Ellis, had no engineering degree when he began working on the project, but would later go on to write what became a standard textbook on structural engineering, and would ultimately be forced to complete his calculations on the bridge by working without pay for five months.
It's about one-and-four-fifths times as tall as a Giant Sequoia (tree).
In other words, the height of a Giant Sequoia (tree) is 0.560 times 294.590 cubits.
(a.k.a. Sequoiadendron giganteum, a.k.a. Sierra redwood, a.k.a. Wellingtonia)
Giant Sequoias of the Giant Sequoia National Monument located in Sierra Nevada, near Visalia, California can grow to heights of 170 cubits. The wood from the Giant Sequoias is often brittle and prone to shattering when such trees are felled, and as a result the trees logged in the late nineteenth century were often usable only as shingles or matchsticks.
