What You Can Expect

St Paul's Cathedral Entrance Ticket

St Paul's Cathedral Internal

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.

We booked tickets through Viator, but registered at the front desk for a guided tour I think they start on the hour from memory. The volunteer guide brought the history to life and was very informative and interesting. This is a stunning cathedral, which I preferred over Westminster Abbey.

We visited St Paul's with the benefit of a guide just register at the front desk - the guide brought the history to life and was very informative. A stunning cathedral which I enjoyed more than our visit to Westminster Abbey.

We spent four hours in St Paul's. So much to see and learn. Climb to the Whispering Gallery. The cafe serves good food and coffee, if a little expensive. This is often a site missed by visitors to London, but should not be. The docents are always nearby and are very knowledgeable.
