St. Paul's Cathedral is a very recognisable landmark in London. I visited St. Paul's for a few minutes in January 2015 and wasn't able to enter the cathedral properly due to time restriction my friends and I were having. However, I enjoyed the architecture and shape of the church from outside. This time I was able to enter it, and... More

This is a must-see. The entry price includes the audio guide. If you are physically able, make your way up to the Whispering Gallery, and if you can, continue to the very top (500+ steps). It is well worth the workout - impressive views of London from the top of the dome.

A stunning display of architectural mastery from Sir Christopher Wren steeped in history. A guided or radio tour is a must to appreciate the works and history of such an important monument to British worship.

I'd never visited St Paul's before, despite having lived in London for 20 years. So when my nephew came from Australia I thought we should go. It really is magnificent, and the hundreds of stairs to the whispering gallery are worth it for the views. But it is immensely expensive, although some people were coming in for evensong as we...

If you are in London you need to visit here. The sheer size of the cathedral will leave your jaw on the floor. The style and design is amazing and the tour to the crypt and to the very top just added to the cathedrals appeal. A must see.

Staying in City of London

Neighbourhood Profile
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 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.
