If you think the outside is nice, wait until you get inside. You should most definitely use the audio guide because it offers so much information. We sat down in the seats for about 15-20 minutes just marveling at the artwork on the ceilings and...More

We have only seen the cathedral from outside, as we should pay £ 18,00 for Entrance. From outside the St. Paul's Cathedral is a very huge and fantastic building. Before you can enter the cathedral you and your bags will be checked for security reasons.

This was one of my highlights. Make sure you get a headphone for interactive information about the cathedral. Look up-truly amazing. The steps up are many, however, I highly recommend going all the way to the top. The view is spectacular.

A wonderful place to visit, anytime for any length of time. The space, the decor, and the history are all superb. The climb to the top is a challenge, but on a nice day worth it.

From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to
its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile
in the world, the financial district known simply as
“The City” is one of London's most historic and
fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office
towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with
Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually
every era in between, including Christopher Wren's
