About Your Visit

St Paul's, with its vast dome, is an iconic feature of the London skyline and known across the world.

When you step inside you will marvel at the Cathedral's awe-inspiring interior and uncover fascinating stories about its history and the rich work and worship that takes place here, all set over five levels, the highest of which will give you unrivalled views over London.


When you come St Paul's, we hope to give you a visit you will remember. With your sightseeing ticket, you can walk in the footsteps of royalty and political leaders on the Cathedral floor; climb the dome to try the unique acoustics of the Whispering Gallery; go even higher to enjoy some of the most spectacular views over London from the Stone and Golden Galleries; or head down to the crypt where our nation's heroes are buried.

There is also an exhibition focusing on the Cathedral, before, during and after The Great Fire of London. Discover a collection of scorched pre-Fire artefacts and learn of the re-building challenges Sir Christopher Wren faced with his radical design.

Included in your ticket price are one of our multi-lingual multimedia guides and / or a tour led by one of our knowledgeable guides - both of which reveal all about the history, architecture and daily life of the Cathedral.

Furthermore if you purchase your tickets at the Cathedral, or in advance at a discount via our online ticketing pages, you have the opportunity to receive a further years free entry at no additional cost to you. 

Your visit to the Cathedral will help us to preserve St Paul's for centuries to come. We look forward to welcoming you and we are extremely grateful for your support.
