What You Can Expect

St Paul's Cathedral Entrance Ticket

St Paul's Cathedral Entrance Ticket

Experience the whole of St Paul's Cathedral – a mainstay of the London skyline – on a self-guided tour. Designed by famous English architect Sir Christopher Wren, the current cathedral was completed in 1708, after the Great Fire of London ruined Old St Paul’s in 1666. The cathedral has always been associated with significant British events, including the wedding of Prince Charles to Lady Diana Spencer, Diamond Jubilee celebrations for Queen Victoria and an 80th birthday service for Queen Elizabeth II.

With your entrance ticket, head inside and pick up your audio/video guide, available in nine languages (see below for a list). You’ll tour the cathedral on your own, listening to the audio commentary and using your touch screen for historical tidbits and information about the significance of the cathedral throughout English history.

Begin in the cathedral’s crypt, with its memorials, tombs and monuments of important Brits like Lord Nelson and the Duke of Wellington. Climb upstairs to the Whispering Gallery - giving you a magnificient view of the cathedral - the exterior Stone Gallery and eventually the Golden Gallery with its panoramic views of the capital.

As you walk around, marvel at the soaring dome, the glittering mosaics, the intricate stone carving and the breathtaking view down the central nave toward the quire aisle.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

Had an amazing time here! I toured it at my leisure and I was there about 3 hours. Even climbed all 576 steps to the top and was able to take some incredible photographs. I will definitely return to St. Pauls.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

What an excellent venue. We didn't think we needed the skip the queue ticket for this one because we arrived at opening time and there was hardly anyone there but it was good not to have to pay plus the ticket gave us access to the dome which was actually why we went. The audio guide was great and the trip was well worth it. When we were leaving the queue to get in was quite impressive, we would have appreciated skipping the line then.

What an awesome experience. I don't recommend climbing the 528 step to the top!
