St Paul's Cathedral: Filming and photography is not allowed inside the cathedral and we ask visitors not to use their mobile phones. Photography is however allowed from the exterior Galleries (Stone and Golden Galleries) which offer fantastic 360° panoramic views of London.

St Paul’s Cathedral is a working church and special services or events may sometimes close all or part of the cathedral - please check before your visit.

The IPod touch multimedia guide is included and offered to all individual visitors. It is available in 11 languages and provides up to 90 minutes of self guided content.

Please note
As part of a review into how cathedral users enter, explore, and exit the cathedral building during sightseeing hours, the Crypt door at street level on the NW corner of St Paul’s will be exit only for the period 29th June to 29th August. 

This will mean that over this trial period the toilets, shop and café, which are usually accessible in the un-ticketed western end of the Crypt, will only be accessible to cathedral sightseers who have already entered the Cathedral.

We envisage the only impact being for guides and group leaders who may usually like to use the Crypt toilets before entering the Cathedral at the main West end entrance. Over this trial period they should either amend their route and first enter the Cathedral at the main West end entrance before heading down to the Crypt toilets during the visit, or use alternative external toilets before arriving at the Cathedral.

    "Great guides on the 2 buses we travelled on - informative and funny. Plus the river tour guide was very good. We loved St Paul's even though afraid of heights! the steps were a challenge as was the vertigo."
