Took a non-guided tour with a group. This was one of the places that I most wanted to see while in London. In some ways it lived up to my expectations. The walk to the very top of the Cathedral, 578 steps I believe, required...More

We took the Highlights tour which was free with the ticket. The guide was nice, rambled a bit but was clearly very passionate about the cathedral and its history. Shame there are only 3 women commemorated in the crypt!

I went to visit and light a candle for my Grandmother she never got over there to see how beautiful the Churches are with all of the paintings and stained glass. You become awestruck seeing all of it.

This is very beautiful cathedral but it is nonsense to pay 18 pounds to go in though all the museums are free in London.

We loved our visit to St. Paul's cathedral. It is a magnificent structure, with amazing art, structural details, and atmosphere. We were fortunate to be there during a Mass, which we enjoyed.

This is a truly landmark building and one which has had a massive influence on both the skyline and hearts of the people of London. Aside from the majesty of the building, the ornate ceiling decorations and whispering gallery (lots of steps!) try to time...More

St Paul's is a stunning cathedral to visit with its history, architecture and stained glass windows but to hear choral evensong mass sung by the mens choir was breathtaking. It starts at 500pm, so try to get there by 430 to take in the beauty...More

Glorious to look at from inside and outside, this huge structure, decorated with beautiful images and statues, carved wood and beautiful architecture. The experience really is increased a hundredfold by the audioguide, which gives such fascinating insights to the history of St Paul's. The Dome...More

My children easily climbed to the top of the dome both inside and outside. For us it was more dificult. The elevator should be made available to handicapped and seniors. Make sure to visit the crypt too.

“The City” is one of London's most historic and
