About St Paul’s Cathedral Experience
Explore St. Paul’s Cathedral, an architectural masterpiece and England’s place of national celebration.
Today St Paul’s Cathedral is both a busy working Anglican Cathedral and one of London’s leading sightseeing attractions. Touchscreen multimedia guides are now included for sightseers; listen and watch, as the guide uses film, new photography, and detailed commentary to offer an effective interpretation of this unique landmark.
Opt for a more personal approach with tours of the cathedral floor and crypt led by cathedral guides 4 times daily; join in at no extra cost as you spend 60 minutes walking through the cathedral and learning about its art, its history, and its religious significance. Alternatively, join one of various short introductory talks offered throughout the day for a snippet of additional insight. These guided tours and talks are available on a first-come first served basis. Please register on arrival.
St Paul’s Cathedral has one of the tallest domes in the world. It was also the tallest building in London from 1710 – 1967. The height of the dome is 111 metres (365 feet). It includes the interior Whispering Gallery and the external Stone and Golden Galleries.
As you walk through the cathedral, you will notice it is filled with natural light, glittering mosaics, and paintings adorning its dome interior. See the chapels on the ground floor, then, for those who are able, climb the 257 steps to the Whispering Gallery to test the unique acoustics. Climb 119 further steps to the Stone Gallery and then 152 final steps to the Golden Gallery, both of which afford spectacular panoramic views of the city.
