With its massive dome punctuating the London skyline, St. Paul's Cathedral is one of the city's most distinct sights. Both visually and ceremonially significant, the cathedral has hosted the funerals of Lord Nelson, the Duke of Wellington, Sir Winston Churchill, and Margaret Thatcher, and the wedding of Prince Charles and Princess Diana. Climb to the top of the dome, pausing in the Whispering Gallery to hear murmurs from 30 m (100 ft) away, before walking up 271 more steps for panoramic views of London from the Golden Gallery. Head down to the crypt to view the tombs of national heroes, such as Lord Nelson and the Duke of Wellington. Learn about the cathedral's history in Oculus, a 270-degree film exhibit. For more information about the venue's detailed mosaics, paintings, and architecture, take a guided tour or pick up a touchscreen multimedia guide at the entrance. After touring the cathedral, you can enjoy traditional English tea in the Restaurant at St. Paul’s.

By far the best of the London churches. Stunningly beautiful from the outside and steeped in our proud history on the inside. You cannot fail to be moved spiritually.

Well worth the price of admission! A must-see on your first trip to London, welcoming to all denominations. St Paul's iconic dome is a London landmark and was London's tallest structure from 1710 to 1963. Designed by Christopher Wren, St Paul's is the most iconic example of English Baroque architecture. I appreciate all of the modern art that has been installed and incorporated into the cathedral, which appeals to a secular audience. the basements include the burials of some important Britons, with galleries and gift shop. If able, I highly recommend climbing its many steps to its 365ft observation deck with 360 degree views of London.
Amazing architectural and visual wonder. London’s most beautiful and historically significant landmark and highest point of the city. Gallery of various renowned artworks. Has two great bells known as Great Tom and Great Paul. Ascending to the whisper gallery, stone gallery and golden gallery leaves you stunned and awestruck. Audio guided tour makes your experience memorable. Must visit place and highly recommended
