One of London's most recognisable and historic landmarks

Highlights of a visit to Sir Christopher Wren's recently restored masterpiece include Jean Tijou's beautiful wrought iron gates of 1700; listening to the 1695 organ which Mendelssohn once played; visiting the tombs of Nelson and Wellington; and, of course, testing the unique acoustics of the Whispering Gallery before climbing up to the Golden Gallery to enjoy a panoramic view of London that is second to none. In the crypt you’ll find Oculus, a 270-degree film 'experience' which tells 1,400 years of St Paul's history. Visitors can explore using touch screen multimedia guides or on arrival join one of the scheduled guided tours, both included with the sightseeing admission charge.


Visit website for details

Special services or events may close all or part of the cathedral at short notice so please check the website for scheduled events.

The first service at St Paul's took place in 1697, since when the state funerals of Nelson, Wellington and Churchill; the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria, the Golden and Diamond Jubilees of Elizabeth II; and the wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer have taken place here.
