Description

Visit this London landmark, designed by Sir Christopher Wren, and experience the soaring architecture and breathtaking atmosphere. Explore the Whispering Gallery, check out the underground Crypt, and head up to the Golden Gallery, 111 meters above London for some amazing views!

There's plenty to fascinate everyone at St Paul's. The World War One Altar Frontal was embroidered by WWI veterans as part of their recovery. Visit the Whispering Gallery at the base of the dome and whisper a sweet nothing into the wall which, thanks to a quirk of construction, can be heard on the other side.The crypt holds the tombs of Lord Horatio Nelson, the 1st Duke of Wellington and Sir Christopher Wren himself.

Through all the builds and rebuilds, there's been a religious building on this spot for over 1,400 years (!) After the Great Fire of London in 1666, Sir Christopher Wren was tasked with creating something truly iconic to span the ages. His peerless creation has stood watch over the city ever since its completion in 1710.

Note: Please note that the Stone and Golden Galleries will be closed until 15 December. During this time, you can reach the Whispering Gallery via a little-used 'secret' staircase, offering new sights of Wren's great design.

Summer Lates

St Paul’s at dusk is an even more magical atmosphere. Celebrate the beauty of Wren’s great church in the twilight hours in a series of special late openings over summer.

Climb the Cathedral's iconic dome right up to the Whispering Gallery, see the Stone and Golden Galleries, and even get some magic-hour photos inside.

Thursdays 26 July, 9 August, 16 August, 23 August & 30 August 6.30pm – 9pm (last admission 8pm)

Wonderful! Great audio tour!

It was worth booking the Fast Track tickets beforehand as we walked straight inside to the check in desk whereas the queue for people paying on the door was extremely long.

Beautiful!

Absolutely loved our visit, didnt know what to expect on arrival but be we got there about midday and thankfully the queues were minimal. The cathedral is stunning inside and there is endless amounts of things to see, sat under the main dome looking up was the first major highlight! The stairs to the whispering gallery, the stone gallery and the golden gallery may see daunting but are 100% worth it, the views are spectacular. Over all we spent twice as long as we were expecting, around 2 hours.
The only downside was we would of spent longer in the crypt looking at the memorials but as there is also the cafe down there so it seemed rather noisey. Otherwise id definitely recommend visiting.
One final thing is that you cant take photos inside, so a little frustrating but overall better that you dont have people taking grinning selfies in front of war memorials etc
