About Your Visit
How you can experience St Paul's Cathedral online
Like so many around the world, St Paul’s Cathedral is, for the moment, closed to visitors.
While people cannot experience St Paul’s Cathedral in person, we are seeking opportunities to deliver its mission in different ways, through digital media and online content. Whether you live near to the Cathedral, or on the other side of the world, or whether you are a regular service goer or planning on a first visit one day, we are all one community together.
Here are a few ways you can engage with St Paul’s online:
Google Arts and Culture
Gaze up at our spectacular Dome (but without the neck ache) through Google Arts and Culture. Get close up to the arts and crafts around the Cathedral and zoom into and examine our Quire mosaics with exquisite detail. You’ll even get to explore the model room, including Wren’s original designs for the Cathedral, which is not often open to the public.
Download our multimedia guide
Why not listen to our Multimedia Guide whilst you (virtually) explore the Cathedral on Google Arts and Culture? Download our St Paul's Cathedral Multimedia Guide app straight to your phone and discover more about St Paul’s Cathedral as a place of worship, its role in history and today as well as the treasures it houses. It's a shortened version of our onsite multimedia guide but it will give you a taste of what we have to offer and is available in nine languages. Available to download for free from Google Play and IOS.
Listen to St Paul’s Cathedral Choir on Spotify
Whilst we are disappointed in having to pause our 800 year tradition of Choral Evensong and other public services, you can listen to recordings of the wonderful St Paul’s Cathedral Choir on Spotify.
Take time to explore our content on YouTube
Those in a church community will know the enrichment that comes of the contact and fellowship in attending regular services. It can feel isolating to no longer be able to take part in these routines. It is not the same as going to church but there are a range of videos on our YouTube channel, which include some of the most exciting theologians and Christian thinkers in the UK and around the world. Maybe you can even share our videos with your online communities and discuss with friends over virtual catch-ups on Zoom, WhatsApp Video and Skype.
Follow us on social media and sign up to our mailing list
We’d love to hear from you. Our physical Cathedral may be closed but will be sharing content regularly on our Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts. Reach out to us on social media and share your St Paul’s experiences with us. Find out the latest news from St Paul's Cathedral by signing up to our mailing list.
If you’ve already been to St Paul’s Cathedral but haven’t posted a review of your experience, why not take the time to do it now. We love to hear positive comments but we also take this time to reflect on constructive feedback and see how we can improve our visitor experience when we re-open our doors.
We will continue to explore new ways of delivering our mission and to serve our community through digital media and virtual connections. As this develops we will update this page.
