COVID-19 Update: In line with the national lockdown in England, the Cathedral is currently closed for sightseeing visits. Following the declaration of a Major Incident in London due to high rates of COVID-19, the Chapter of St Paul’s has additionally made the difficult decision to close the Cathedral for public worship and private prayer with immediate effect. The Ministers will continue to offer prayer and worship on behalf of us all. More information and COVID-19 updates can be found here.

St Paul's Cathedral actively works with the domestic and International travel trade markets and welcomes many hundreds of thousands of visitors to the Cathedral each year. Visiting St Paul's is an awe-inspiring and informative experience and adds tremendous value to any London itinerary.

As a freesale product it is easy to offer admission to St Paul's Cathedral to your customers - bookings only required for very large groups. On average our visitors stay for two hours although longer and shorter visits are common.

Whilst the exterior is a true landmark of London and an attraction in its own right, it is through coming inside the Cathedral that our visitors can enjoy the full majesty and scale of the building and take advantage of exploring the different areas included for sightseers.
