Product Details

St Paul's, with its world-famous dome, is an iconic feature of the London skyline. Step inside and you can enjoy the cathedral's awe-inspiring interior, and uncover fascinating stories about its history. 

There's so much to see and discover at St Paul's. Here are a few ideas to get you started.

Climb the Dome 
Climb up the dome to the Whispering Gallery and try out its unique acoustics; a whisper on one side can be heard clearly 100 feet away. Climb 271 more steps and reach the Golden Gallery at the very top of the dome where you can enjoy breathtaking panoramic views across London. 

Go on a touchscreen multimedia tour
Fly-through videos of the dome galleries and zoomable close-ups of breathtaking mosaics and paintings will help you see more of St Paul’s than has ever been possible before. Multimedia Guides and Guided Tours reveal all about the history, architecture and daily life of the cathedral.

Discover the crypt
Make your way underground and explore the Cathedral’s foremost burial place. In the crypt lie some of the nation’s heroes including the Cathedral’s architect Sir Christopher Wren as well as the magnificent tombs of Admiral Lord Nelson and the Duke of Wellington.

Travel back in time in an immersive film experience
The 270˚ film exhibition, Oculus; an eye into St Paul's,brings 1400 years of history to life. Oculus takes you on a journey through the history and daily life of St Paul's Cathedral.Virtual access films take visitors up to the dome and galleries without leaving the ground.

 

Special Notes

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 that savings are calculated from the attraction's advertised gate rate.

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.

    "We had a fabulous day. St Paul's was breathtaking. A really inspiring place to visit, full of stunning architecture, magnificent views, and steeped in history.Not to be missed. "

    "An inspiring building, with excellent audio guide. I visited St Paul's as a school child and realise now that I didn't see anything. The dome paintings, mosaics and crypt are particularly impressive. Would recommend to anyone although the climb to the galleries is difficult for any with mobility issues."

    "Amazing views from top of St Paul's after a very long climb up stairs. Do not attempt unless you are reasonably fit and have no knee pain!! "

  • "Breathtaking"
     
     
     
     
     

    "It is difficult to find words to describe this building - it is simply magnificent and should be a 'must do' if visiting London. The audio guides were comprehensive and informative. The paintings in the interior are quite simply breathtaking and it is worth climbing to the first level to the famous 'Whispering Gallery'. We didn't go to the higher levels because of the number of steps involved! This did not detract from our visit in any way though. The crypt was also interesting with the Duke of Wellington, Lord Nelson and Millais buried there."
