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.
