This is by far my favourite building in London! It is ancient but stands out and fits in all at the same time. You can attend the service day or night. It's definitely worth seeing, unlikely you can avoid seeing it anyway. Whether you're religious or not it's amazing!!!

The building and surrounding gardens are really stunning, but admission is £18 per person. For some that's an acceptable price, I wasn't willing to part with my money though, so just had a quick nosey inside the door then left.

Awe inspiring!!! The ceiling paintings are truly stunning. Next time I visit, and I will defiantly go again, I will certainly take a mirror so I don't get a stiff neck. A respectful lowering of voices, even from the children, meant that you could quietly sit and soak up the surroundings whilst listening to the informative audio guide. The memorials,... More

This iconic church was fascinating, both historically and architecturally. The price of admission (18 pounds) included a guided tour, and the tour guide, named "Celia", did a tremendous job. Without belaboring any section or artifact, she moved us through the church explaining its history and functions. After the tour we climbed to the Upper Gallery, where the "whisper dome" is....

Like all of the sights in London, this did not disappoint. This is absolutely a place you must see. To not see it, will cause you to question reality. I loved it.

Fantastic visitor attraction, informed self guided tour, and plenty of helpful staff around. If you are up for a strenuous climb the views from the external galleries are amazing. A truly spectacular cathedral, we'll worth a visit.

It's expensive but worth seeing at least once! The architecture is amazing and the audio guides were a perfect accompaniment....don't miss the tombs!

I have visited London several time and never been to St Pauls. Now I know what I was missing. The building itself is beautiful and the audio guide works very well. There is plenty of seating available in all areas so you can sit down and listen to the commentary about the different parts of the church at your own... More

After many attractions that are superb and free, it was not good seeing the 17 pound entrance fee per person. We backed tracked and just enjoyed the outside since we have seen this 6 years earlier when there was no fee as yet.

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.
