Become a Friend
From just £30 a year, join the Friends and enjoy a much closer connection with St Paul’s – through priority access to special performances, exclusive Friends events, discounts and much more.
Established in 1952, the Friends have a fascinating history of supporting and protecting the Cathedral. They began as a group of volunteers risking their lives to save the Cathedral from bombing during WWI. Today, the Friends are a unique community who come together to enjoy our music, heritage, art and spiritual learning – with some playing a crucial voluntary role in welcoming visitors and being Cathedral guides.
Annual membership is only £30 for an individual and £50 for a guest membership, where you can bring a different guest every time you visit St Paul’s.

- Unlimited year-round admission to the Cathedral (COVID-19 restrictions withstanding).

How is my membership used?
Friends membership subscriptions provide a vital contribution towards the running of the Cathedral, including assisting with our world-class music provision, the conservation of our historic fabric, and our schools and family learning programme. As the Reverend Canon Jonathan Brewster says:
“To become a Friend of St Paul’s is to participate in this extraordinary place, to take care of an historic masterpiece and to come alive to something greater than yourself.”
