The sheer magnitude of the Church is impressive and quite beautiful. Climbing the Galleries is worth it and getting the Whispering Gallery to “work” is fun. The view from the top is also quite impressive as you can see the juxtaposition of the old and...More

Truly awe inspiring to sit at the head of this wonderful building which had 2400. Livery men and women attending this yearly service since the end of the 2nd World War to assist with re-build London buisness.

Very impressive cathedral. Climbing the galleries was great fun for the whole family - and a good workout. Amazing views from the very top. Beautiful church choir.

The cathedral is a serene place & is very peaceful. This allows you to appreciate it's architecture. Keep your eyes towards the ceiling & you will be left bedazzled.

Toured St Paul's Cathedral as part of a day tour of London. Beautiful cathedral! Loved the downstairs, the crypts, etc. And the grounds are lovely! The tribute to the US for efforts in WWII was very moving! Worth the visit!

He is buried in the south isle at the east end of the crypt, surrounded by plaques of his family so I doubt if any appointment will be needed.
