  • To visit the Cathedral you have three options. 1° admire the exterior and entrance until the cordon delimiting the area surcharge. 2° During a religious ceremony you will be allowed to assist but not wander make photos. 3° you can take advantage of the visit fee, I recommend the latter. Once you've paid will deliver a mp4 player with video guide and the sights of the Cathedral, from the crypt which houses among other Wren's Tomb and Admiral Nelson, the upper dome. I am being difficult to tell you what you'll see throughout the time of your visit there are too many things to describe the entry, the nave, the choir the various pipe organs and the dome. The visit of the dome is the most challenging because between ascent and descent have to do more than 1000 steps. Divided into three parts after the first 257 steps you will find yourself in the whispering Gallery in the center of the dome. Climbing other 119 steps arrives at the first terrace where you can enjoy an amazing 360° panorama. Climbing the last 152 steps here we are at the last tunnel located just below the cross, hence the scenery and height are awesome we are 280 feet (85 m) of total 365 because when Sir Christopher Wren designed it decided it had to be high one foot a day for a year. A tip to the top isn't for everyone you have to go through very narrow aisles and if you suffer from Vertigo don't look down as you climb the stairs.

  • It is close to my sister's House, it has a nice garden, also offers part of the Church to make party for children. A service wonderful for the community.

  • The Cathedral of San Pablo, an of the jewels of the architecture London. Home events real here Diana and Charles were married, they celebrated family events of royalty and keeps an underground Crypt with tombs and memorials of characters in contemporary history. The entrance can be purchased online previously or lining up in the same Cathedral. Out around 20 pounds for adults and includes an audio guide in several languages. Majestic!

  • Video Augments the Self-Guided Tour I don’t generally enjoy the audio-video tours of museums and sites because they “over-control” my visit and go into way too much detail. However, I must say that I was pleasantly surprised and quite delighted with the A/V tour included in the price of admission to St. Paul’s Cathedral. Each area of the tour corresponded to particular parts of the cathedral and grounds, with short, yet very informative segments about individual sections and architectural details, letting me choose what to investigate further through the audio-visual guide. In addition, there were recorded videos from congregants, as well as guided prayers and meditations from the church ministers. It had been several years since I had visited St. Paul’s, and the A/V tour provided me with insights and new knowledge about not only the structure, but also the history and functioning of the cathedral, its ministries, and the art inside. The church is a "welcoming congregation," so the Eucharist is open to all, regardless of faith tradition or Christian religion. What a wonderful way to sit, meditate, and pray when under the dome of St. Paul's Cathedral. If you’re physically able and not overly height-phobic, be sure to climb the 526 steps to nearly the top of the dome. The views are worth the effort.
  • Magnificent! Beautiful Cathedral, both day and night. Home is 1 kilometer from here, but I'd get off the tube from here to pass by this place and walk home. Sometimes I'd hang out if the weather is great. Brought a few friends here too. Located really close to millennium bridge.
  • Iconic building and an excellent audio guide, which lets you go around in the order and the pace you want. Views from the galleries are spectacular - both inside and outside the cathedral. Book your tickets online in advance - saves £2 on each ticket. You can also choose to donate to the cathedral rather than just paying, which means you can come back as many times as you want without paying again for a year.
  • Total rip off. Maybe tourists are used to paying above and beyond for things to do however £40 for a family to walk round a cathedral is a lot of money. People say it covers the running costs but seriously the place is packed and is nothing but a money earner the price is way above what they should charge for upkeep. Best of all no photographs which is a joke but a good excuse to sell you some. I work opposite but if i was crazy enough to spend that sort of money and got told i couldn't take pictures they would not like my response and i would be getting my money back. Take your kids to the beach for the day much better value
  • Where: St. Paul's Cathedral - London, UK What: A Cathedral How was it: Just at the end of the Millennium bridge is St. Paul's Cathedral. The area is very picturesque and the Cathedral is very elegant. We wanted to visit inside and ideally go all the way to the top but it was quite busy so we passed our chance. Grade: Eli = 4, Serge = 4 Recommend: Yeah you should go and hopefully it's not too busy when you go.
