Information for travel trade
We actively work with domestic and inbound travel trade partners.
From the atmospheric Crypt, to breath-taking panoramic views over London, visiting St Paul's is an awe-inspiring and informative experience which adds tremendous value to any London itinerary for groups or FIT’s.
Sightseeing at St Paul's
Our sightseeing admission tickets give our visitors access to all areas of the Cathedral open to the public. This is usually:
- the Cathedral Floor
- the Crypt
- the Dome Galleries – climb the stairs to the Stone Gallery and Golden Gallery (the Whispering Gallery is closed to the public until further notice)
- all art installations and cathedral exhibitions.
- free multimedia guides in nine languages plus family tour, British Sign Language (BSL) and Audio Description (AD) formats
- group Tour System for guides and tour leaders
- scheduled guided tours for FIT visitors to join upon arrival.
We recommend you allow two hours for a visit to St Paul’s. Our groups page adds extra information about the ways groups can visit the Cathedral.
We apologise that entrance to the Golden Gallery is subject to availability due to capacity controls in operation and there may be time restrictions in place. The Whispering Gallery remains closed to the public until further notice.

St Paul’s Cathedral voucher scheme
After a successful application and credit check, your organisation can issue customers with pre-approved admission vouchers and be invoiced for tickets at trade rates.
- Vouchers should be printed, not shown on mobile, and are exchanged for admission tickets upon arrival at the Cathedral.
- Vouchers should be date specific.
- Your organisation will be invoiced monthly at month end, based on how many tickets were purchased with your vouchers.
During 2022 we will be merging our voucher scheme and B2B portal for most existing and new partners. This will combine the benefits of the portal and our E-tickets and allow bookings to be made against your organisations credit facility, up to any pre-agreed monthly credit limit.
