Covid-19 Update

Due to health and safety regulations, this itinerary may change. See Know before you go for the latest updates.

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 90 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 be aware that the Whispering Gallery remains closed until further notice. From May 17 to July 23, 2021, access to the Dome Galleries is temporarily available only on Saturday visits and from Monday, May 31 to Friday, June 4, 2021.

      Initially not pleased as didnt suggest I'd be alloted a specific time when I booked but as confirmation came through it gave me 1st thing in am and we'd planned another activity for then, plus has to get over there for 8:30am. Once there the staff were helpful and friendly and thought the cathedral was magnificent

      From start to finish the tour was AMAZING!!! Cathedral is absolutely STUNNING and being able to walk around all levels made the experience even better. The walk up to the top was challenging in the old legs but OMG the views from the top were totally worth the aching pain.

      St Paul's is certainly worth a visit. It's a wonderful historic building, but there is also a real sense that this is part of a great Christian heritage. Booking in advance is worth it: money off and genuinely fast-track entrance. We took the audio guide, which was excellent in explaining the various parts of the building, and also giving spiritual insights. We went all the way up to the top: the Stone Gallery gives great views at an intermediate stage, and if you suffer from vertigo or claustrophobia, I wouldn't recommend going all the way on to the small Golden Gallery. Having said that, we had a Kenyan student with us who thought that was the best part! All in all, this is a highly recommended experience: great history, and a chance to reflect on the important things of life too. Thank you, St Paul's.
