Combine two of London’s top experiences with an entrance ticket to St Paul’s Cathedral and a Thames River sightseeing cruise. With your 24-hour cruise pass, you can hop on or hop off your boat at three conveniently located piers. See iconic London sights like the Houses of Parliament and the London Eye from the water, and then pay a visit to St Paul’s Cathedral. Admire the elaborate beauty of the cathedral floor, see the tombs of historic figures in the crypt, and ascend to the Golden Gallery for spectacular views.
With your 24-hour hop-on hop-off cruise pass, board your boat at one of the following conveniently located piers — Tower Pier, Greenwich Pier or Westminster Pier. From the water, you’ll enjoy an alternative perspective of top London attractions such as the Houses of Parliament, the London Eye and Westminster Abbey.
Cruises depart every 30 minutes from the pier of your choice, allowing you to hop on and hop off whenever an attraction captures your attention. Glide beneath the iconic Tower Bridge and see, too, the Tate Modern, County Hall, the Cutty Sark, Southward Cathedral, in addition to many more famous monuments.
During your cruise, opt to purchase refreshments from an onboard bar and ascend to the upper deck to capture fantastic photographs.
Before or after your cruise, head to St Paul’s Cathedral — the limestone landmark designed by Sir Christopher Wren — and present your entrance ticket on arrival. Marvel at the elaborate decoration of the cathedral’s interior, adorned with prismatic paintings and intricate sculptures, before admiring the tombs of historic figures in the crypt.
Then, venture upwards to the Whispering Gallery — so called because whispers can be heard clearly 100 feet (30 meters) away — and then conquer a further 271 steps to the Golden Gallery, from which spectacular city views can be enjoyed.
2 hours is sufficient time to explore St Paul’s, but feel free to stay longer if you feel the need.
