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!
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.

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.
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.
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
glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
