Never have I seen such a beautiful cathedral. Just breath taking. We also went to a service and that was very nice too.

If you enjoy visiting large architecturally beautiful churches this will make your day. As always, you pay to enter this church. Many famous British citizens are buried in the catacombs of St. Paul's Cathedral. A worthwhile stop on your tour of London.

Impressive church but nothing inside is significantly different from other famous churches which do not charge a cover (e.g. Notre Dame in Paris). Most families will spend 1/2 hr viewing a church like this and at GBP17 a person there are better places to spend...More

This is the last and grandest cathedral to be built on this space. Designed by the ever-present Christopher Wren, this massive hunk of architecture is awe inspiring both outside and inside. Unlike every other cathedral in the UK, this one is rather Italienne in it's...More

This is really a nice visit. The Cathedral is so majestic, large and tons of history. If you have the stamina climb to the top it is about 250 steps. Great view and nice area for quite reflection.

Beautiful baroque style cathedral with a unique dome. The building itself is lovely, but the inside is very interesting. I enjoyed the various memorials and was suddenly and surprisingly moved by the memorial to Lord Melbourne, Queen Victoria's first prime minister. Yes, there is paid...More

The price is too much just to go and look around inside the old cathedral. Not allowed to take pictures inside. Not fair for the price paid.
