I've always wanted to go into this building, and I finally did! It did not disappoint. There wasn't much of a queue to get in, and you can do it in any order, so we avoided the school group and kept to quieter areas. The...More

I think it is a rip off, the church, one of the richest organisations in the country (if not the top) installing cash registers in the entrance charging an £18 entrance fee. Did Jesus not cast out money people? Matthew 21:12–13.

this cathedral is stunning, we climbed all the way to the top and the views really are breathtaking (especially the stairs) but I did like that at each level you could turn round if you wanted, there was no pressure to go the whole way....More

I went yesterday for visiting st paul cathedral but I didn’t enter because the price is very expensive. Anyway outside the cathedral seems very beautiful.

Truly breathtaking, St Paul's is a must. If you can, try to attend a service to hear the choir sing. Their voices echo around the hall beautifully. The Christmas service here is also magical.

The audio guide is included in the entry fee and is excellent way to truly appreciate all that is here. Come back at 5pm for Evensong (free) as the choir sings to the end of the day. Sit anywhere - the acoustics are impeccable
