Explore St. Paul’s Cathedral, an architectural masterpiece and England’s place of national celebration. Today St Paul’s is both a busy working Anglican Cathedral and one of London’s leading sightseeing attractions. Touchscreen multimedia guides are now included for sightseers; listen and watch, as the guide uses film, new photography, and detailed commentary to offer an effective interpretation of this unique landmark.

Opt for a more personal approach with tours of the cathedral floor and crypt led by cathedral guides 4 times daily; join in at no extra cost as you spend 60 minutes walking through the cathedral and learning about its art, its history, and its religious significance. Alternatively, join one of various short introductory talks offered throughout the day for a snippet of additional insight. These guided tours and talks are available on a first come first served basis. Please register on arrival.

As you walk through the cathedral, you will notice it is filled with natural light, glittering mosaics, and paintings adorning its dome interior. See the chapels on the ground floor, then, for those who are able, climb the 257 steps to the Whispering Gallery to test the unique acoustics. Climb 119 further steps to the Stone Gallery and then 152 final steps to the Golden Gallery, both of which afford spectacular panoramic views of the city. Take time to visit the crypt to view the many tombs and memorials to world-famous Britons, including Lord Admiral Nelson and the Duke of Wellington. Please note that entrance to the Golden Gallery is subject to availability due to capacity controls in operation and there may be time restrictions in place.

FEATURED REVIEW(S)

4.7/5 stars – based on 4983 reviews


Saint Paul’s Cathedral is a superb monument, just opposite the Millenuin Bridge. Everything is magnificent in this cathedral, the stained glass windows, the architecture and the view from the different viewpoints after climbing several steps/stairs which make you dizzy. But it’s worth it. On the other hand, for elderly people with weak knees or breath, be careful!!! Despite everything, 1000% recommended. Superb.

Practical information to note: Outside St Paul’s Cathedral there is no Get Your Guide information point, you will have to go through security and enter to go to the reception desk which will check your reservation and give you your ticket. A cathedral to visit and re-do. For my part I did it with my partner and my grandmother who climbed to the top of the dome (252 fairly narrow steps) where the magnificent and impressive view of the Tower Bridge, the City, the Miliennium Bridge, River Thames and London Eye and many more. I recommend.
