If you like visiting churches you can't miss this one. From the beautiful ceiling to the grand organ (we were lucky enough to hear the organist practicing) a most unforgetable experience.

This magnificent cathedral is so worth more than a cursory glance. Take a docent's tour, if you are able, so that you can understand the history of the building and its significance. Be sure to walk up to the Whispering Gallery, but watch what you...More

At least 2 hrs needed for visiting this impressive monument; apart from the great architecture that takes you back through centuries , you have the possibility to climb stairs up to the top where you can take panoramic photos of London.

Been to the Cathedral many times but the audio guide enhanced this visit. There are options for only highlights or doing a full tour. The information is presented in a lively, engaging way, not dry and tedious some other audio guides.

Disappointing to see such a London land Mark not cleaned. Somehow the building looks bigger in photos and on TV. Didn’t pay extra to see rest of the building or the views from top. For a non religious person it doesn’t take long at all...More

“The City” is one of London's most historic and

We were with a tour so already had tickets! There was s long line for walk up tickets so I’d suggest going early in the day & not on a weekend.

I do not believe there are allocated times, aside from the opening hours. We turned up, and brought a ticket as a spur of the moment thing.
