The safety and security of all our visitors, worshippers, staff and volunteers is of the utmost importance to us. We have a variety of security measures in place to keep you safe, some measures are visible and some are imperceptible. We work in close partnership with the City of London police, and other security partners, and carry out patrols as part of Project Servator
Bag searching is one of many security measures in place, and is a condition of entry to the Cathedral.

Visitors and worshippers cannot bring any item or luggage into the Cathedral above the maximum permitted dimensions of 45cm x 30cm x 25cm including handles, wheels and pockets. As there is no cloakroom facility please do not bring larger items with you. Prams and pushchairs are permitted should they exceed these dimensions, and will be subject to searching. 

Please note that knives, pepper spray, mace, CS spray or any offensive weapons are illegal in the UK.
