Advent and Christmas 2017

The Advent, we invite everyone to take part in Cathedral life, with special activities designed especially for families visiting St Paul's.

As at all times of year, families visiting St Paul's have the option to turn their day ticket into an annual pass at no extra cost. 

We hope you enjoy your visit to St Paul's this Advent and Christmas. Do keep an eye out for events and activities taking place in the future.

Turn your day ticket into an annual pass - for free!
If you buy a sightseeing ticket either online or at the door, you can instantly turn it into an annual pass by using Gift Aid as part of your purchase. This will allow you to return at no extra cost for a whole calendar year, meaning you can come and see us again and take part in family activities in all the school holidays. The Gift Aid option is explained in the online ticketing process and full information is available from the Cathedral's admissions staff.
This offer is available on adult, child, concession and family tickets. A family ticket (two adults, two children) costs £39 online and £44 on the door.

Multimedia guides Our multimedia guides let you discover more about all areas of the Cathedral as well as transporting you back in time to some of the most notable times in the history of St Paul's. Available in nine languages these high-resolution touch screen devices are filled with interactive content, fly-throughs of the dome galleries, zoomable close-ups, commentary from historical figures such as Christopher Wren, Florence Nightingale and Admiral Nelson, and a number of activities and quizzes.
Cathedral trails Family trails allow children to discover the Cathedral at their own pace and are packed with fun facts and opportunities to find things, write creatively and draw pictures. They can all be printed in advance of your visit (just click on the pictures) but plenty will be available once inside.
  
  
Cathedral services As a busy working church, acts of worship are part of our daily life. You are warmly invited to attend all our services - we particularly recommend Choral Evensong, at which you can hear our world-famous choir.
