What You Can Expect

St Paul's Cathedral Entrance Ticket

St Paul's Cathedral Entrance Ticket

Tour the breathtaking interior of St Paul’s Cathedral – a relic of London’s long and storied past. Originally built in 604 by the Bishop of the East Saxons, this glorious monument suffered a millennia of turbulent history – including the Great Fire of 1666 – before being fully reconstructed by Sir Christopher Wren in the 18th century. Learn the story of this famous English architect as you begin your tour of the venue.

With your ticket, jump the queue and pop on your audio/video guide (available in nine languages) for an independent tour of the space, where you’ll learn about the cathedral’s significance through the ages. As the centerpiece of British ceremony, St Paul’s has hosted royal affairs such as the wedding of Prince Charles to Lady Diana Spencer, the Diamond Jubilee celebration for Queen Victoria and an 80th birthday service for Queen Elizabeth II.

Wander the grand space and admire the signature dome, vibrant mosaics and the elaborate stone work. Visit the crypt, adorned with stately monuments and tombs of famous figures such as Winston Churchill, Lord Nelson and the Duke of Wellington. Finish with a walk through the upper galleries – from the Whispering Gallery to the Golden Gallery – for gorgeous interior views of the cathedral and stunning vistas of the bustling capital just outside.

No issues when entering the Cathedral. We were glad that we purchased this in advanced as the normal queue was considerably longer than pre-purchased tickets

This ticket is a must when in London. We pre-purchased our ticket as it was not part of the London Pass and we didn't want to have to queue. Our son was sick on the day of the ticket, but we went and spoke to the ticket person and they were fantastic and said just come any day and we will scan your ticket - you've already paid so it's not a problem.

You are issued with a complimentary audio guide which is very informative and we decided to do the climb which was huge - to the top and the views of London do not disappoint. A lot of people stopped part way up but if you can keep going, please do because the views are fabulous and you can see for miles and see the major landmarks. We had a clear day so we could pick out so may things. There are guides at the top and they are very willing to help pick out landmarks if you can't find them.

The café on the ground floor serves a wonderful array of snacks and morning teas, including Devonshire tea. We had to have a refreshment after all that stair climbing and the prices are excellent for London prices. A lot of people are there meeting others so I think you can just walk in and go to the café for a coffee/tea and meet with friends which is a lovely atmosphere to do it in.

The cathedral and its history is breathtaking and we spent about 3 hours here it was so beautiful.

Really impressing. The ascent to the top of the dome is long, but is divided into three parts also, the steps of the first part are shorter, so one gets accustomed to the effort. The whispering effect is difficult to realize because there are so many whispering people at the same time that the whispers interfere with each other. The audiovisual is very efficient. Apart from the historical comments, examples of musical performances are given in it. The chief organist plays the marvelous Finale of Saint-Saens' third symphony aka the melody of the mice in the Babe movie.
