Wonderful afternoon spent at St. Paul's. They have a cafeteria style eatery in the basement with a lovely cafe for afternoon tea. Just be sure to reserve a spot for tea, as the cafe isn't very large. It was a lovely experience.

I personally would not pay £18 to enter a church, but I suppose everyone has something they would shell out money for. Or just go at 5pm for the Evensong to enter for free.

My first impression of St Paul's was one of disappointment, yes it is big, yes the ceiling and the architecture is impressive, but it seems rather bare. And then I stumbled upon the two works of art by Bill Viola, in particular Martyrs (Earth, Air,...More

An absolute must on any London visitor's tour, however brief. Worth staying another day just to visit!

The history of England was characterized by many cruel and long wars to defend the country and to colonize the world. This monument says it all. Very nice visit. The cathedral is amazing.

I've visited St Paul's on several occasions but this was my first Church Service. The choir was small but ok for the smaller area where the service was held. The Wardens do a very good job of keeping the visitors away from the church goers...More

City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to
its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile
in the world, the financial district known simply as
“The City” is one of London's most historic and
fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office
towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with
Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually
every era in between, including Christopher Wren's

Dear veeta v, So long as a card can be recognised by our staff as being a valid (i.e. not expired) photo ID issued by an educational organisation (i.e. your university) then that would suffice. We don't only offer a... More

Yes, from 8:30am you can view the main area of the cathedral, which, if you are interested in looking in detail will take you a good hour, following which the galleries (in the dome) are open. Before your visit, however... More
