St Paul's Cathedral
St Paul’s Cathedral is one of the UK’s most famous buildings and one of the most iconic London attractions. St Paul’s Cathedral was built in the 17th century by the world-famous architect Sir Christopher Wren and is the biggest Anglican cathedral in the UK. It was memorably used for the wedding of Princess Diana and Prince Charles. The cathedral’s dome is one of the most iconic parts of London’s skyline, alongside the likes of the London Eye, the BT Tower and The Gherkin.
Admission to St Paul’s Cathedral is free for those wishing to attend services as well those wishing to see the basic interior of the building. Those that wish to see the full workings of the church need to pay the sightseeing fee. St Paul’s is a truly stunning building and whether you are a Christian, follow another religion or are of no faith at all, no trip to London is complete without witnessing this mesmerizing building.
Highlights of your visit to St Paul’s Cathedral will include the following features: The Golden Gallery, located 530 steps above ground level and running around the perimeter of the dome; The Dome, which is over 111 metres high and decorated by beautiful mosaics and murals; The Stone Gallery, which is reached by climbing 378 steps; and the Whispering Gallery. St Paul's is a short walk from two other legacies of Sir Christopher Wren's genius, The Monument to the Great Fire of London and St Magnus The Martyr.
