With its iconic dome easily recognizable in the London skyline, St. Paul’s Cathedral is one of the most iconic architectural landmarks in all of England.
When you visit, you'll get access to the Cathedral floor, the crypt where the tombs and memorials of many world-famous Britons, including Lord Admiral Nelson and the Duke of Wellington are, and the three galleries housed in the dome: Whispering Gallery, Stone Gallery, and Golden Gallery, where visitors will get panoramic views of the city.
Touch screen multimedia guide tablets are provided and available in 9 languages for a self-guided tour of the Cathedral or you can choose to go on one of the four daily 90-minute guided tours (subject to availability).
If you prefer to go on a guided tour, plan your visit around the scheduled tour times and a knowledgeable guide will take you through the Cathedral floor and crypt, the Geometric Staircase, Chapel of St. Michael and St. George, and the Quire—areas not typically open to the public.
There are lots of interactive and high-tech exhibits designed to enhance your experience and provide context about St. Paul’s historical significance. You’ll learn all about the history of the Cathedral with archived film footage, interviews and commentary from Cathedral experts and members of congregation and then you can test how much information you retained by answering fun quiz questions, trivia, and playing interactive games.
