A cathedral has stood on this site since the year 604 and the current Cathedral is now the fourth to have been built here after the 1666 Great Fire of London destroyed its predecessor. St Paul's is England's place of national celebration and has hosted Royal Weddings such as that of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer in 1981 and Diamond Jubilee celebrations for both Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth II.

With so much to discover about the history, architecture and role of a national Cathedral you'll appreciate the excellent multimedia guides included with your admission. Available in nine languages in adult and engaging family formats. Or register on arrival to join guided tours and welcome talks led by Cathedral guides. 90 minute guided tours typically start at 10am, 11am, 1pm and 2pm with the shorter welcome talks offered around these. 

St Paul's Cathedral is famous for its iconic Dome which you can climb up to three circular viewing points; first 257 steps to the Whispering Gallery with its unique acoustics whereby a whisper against the wall can be heard 100 feet away. Then 119 steps to the Stone Gallery on the outside of the Dome and then a final 152 steps to the Golden Gallery both offering panoramic views over London perfect for taking photographs from. 

Descend to the Crypt, the largest of any cathedral in western Europe full of tombs and memorials to British heroes. Admiral Lord Nelson and the Duke of Wellington had State Funeral's at the Cathedral and are buried in the Crypt. View the tomb of the Cathedral architect, Sir Christopher Wren and those of artists like J.M.W Turner and Sir John Everett Millais and musicians such as Sir Arthur Sullivan.

You can do the long guided tour, the short guided tour, the headset tour, the shorter climb, the longer climb... any or all of these on the one entry ticket - how amazing is that! And it's stunning.. just beautiful.

A must see while on London. You can spend hours and still not get enough. Those working there were incredibly knowledgable and eager to help and direct. The art, the dome, is breathtaking. Don’t let the lines turn you off. They are extremely long but more extremely quickly. You won’t be disappointed.

The cathedral is breathtaking. The guide was so full of information, and walked us through the cathedral, giving history tidbits that was would have never known otherwise. It is a must-see!!!

Easy access. Beautiful Cathedral. The staff were very kind and helpful. Also, had access to the dome and the stairs.

St Paul's was great. The no wait ticket was a waste of money. Cathedral was extremely busy and crowded.

The Cathedral is beautiful. I was disappointed that the whispering chamber was not available. I bought my ticket not just to visit the cathedral but also the whispering chamber. Apparently it’s closed not only that day I visited but other days. I visited on April 26th. I think aviator should be checking regularly with attractions to make sure that they are not selling something that is not available.

I purchased advanced tickets online a couple of days before our scheduled tour date. I did not notice that I HAD to print the tickets before arrival until.I made the purchase. I was traveling and did not have access to a printer, but thought since I had my voucher on my phone, I would not have a problem. I was wrong! When we arrived at the cathedral, the desk staff informed me of the printed ticket situation. I purchased three more tickets at the cathedral! If you don't have access to a printer, do not buy these tickets. You are better off purchasing tickets directly from the Cathedral ticket office. I am not getting a refund for the tickets I purchased online, per company policy.
The truly spectacular and worth the visit. It is an absolute must see in London!

St Pauls was closed the day that we bought tickets for. This was not mentioned at all before we bought tickets or in the confirmation email. Buy tickets in person at St Paul's
