The Basics

It's possible to visit St. Paul's Cathedral with or without a tour, but you can pre-book fast-track entry tickets to avoid waiting in line. Multimedia guides are available for independent visitors, while guided tours explore highlights such as the nave, the Whispering Gallery, the Golden Gallery, and the crypt. For the best value, opt to combine a visit to this historic landmark with a traditional afternoon tea at the cathedral restaurant, a walking tour, or a hop-on hop-off bus tour of central London. Purchase a London Pass to gain entry to St. Paul's Cathedral and other London attractions such as the British Museum, the Tower of London, and the London Eye.

Amazing place.
So calm and tranquil. Was able to join in the service which was a bonus. Staff helpful. Only problem was had to put audio set head phones over hearing aids which was uncomfortable

St Paul's Cathedral Admission Ticket
Had to book in advance due to Covid but very easy to enter. Used headphones and went around by myself. Disappointed that could go up in the dome but the inside of St Paul’s was magnificent and the crypt very interesting although sometimes a little dark to read the signs

We enjoyed moving at our own pace with the audio tour option. A great way to spend a rainy day in London! So much to see, especially if you’re able-bodied enough to go up in the dome. We opted out of that. I liked the reflections. Any spiritual background can relate, I think.

Loved the Guide, Bus was great and the sites were fantastic. Not our first time to London but we were with people that it was there first time and we set up the tour. They were very happy. You didnt let us down. Also we were very happy with the meeting place for the bus.

To appreciate the building take a guided tour & go up to the middle view point at least if you can stomach the 500+ steps. The view is worth it

The tour was perfect to see as many things as we could in one day. Would have loved to have more time in each place. Minus a point cause the lunch box was not appetizing. Our guide David was awesome

St. Paul's Cathedral is located on Ludgate Hill in the City of London. The closest tube station is St. Paul's on the Central Line, but it's also an easy walk from the Mansion House, Cannon Street, and Blackfriars stations.

The Whispering Gallery at St. Paul's

Located in the iconic dome of St. Paul's and reached by a dizzying 560 steps, this circular gallery is known as the Whispering Gallery because of its unique acoustics. Try it out by standing at one side of the dome and whispering to friends and family at the other end! If you've still got some energy left, scale the 117 steps to the Stone Gallery, followed by 166 steps to reach the Golden Gallery, both of which afford spectacular panoramic views of the city.
