The Basics

It's possible to visit St. Paul's Cathedral with or without a tour. Multimedia guides are available for independent visitors, while guided tours explore highlights such as the nave, the Whispering Gallery, the Golden Gallery, and the crypt. For the best value, opt to combine a visit to this historic landmark with a walking tour or a hop-on hop-off bus tour of central London. Purchase a London Pass to gain entry to St. Paul's Cathedral and other London attractions such as the British Museum, the Tower of London, and the London Eye.

Had an informative tour of St Paul’s Cathedral with Sandy’s expert knowledge of the history and key events that molded this magnificent cathedral. Only wish we had more time to absorb it.

Was able to see so many attractions in the city of London in a day. The tour guide was very knowledgeable. Though a little more free time was needed especially at the Buckingham Palace on the tour.
Great Day

It was a good tour but not great, the bus is big and the sound system does not work. People talks very loud and you can not hear anything at all. Anyway, the tour guide did a great job we could go into St. Paul’s and the Tower of London skipping the lines.
Awesome Experience!

We really enjoyed the tour. The London Eye afforded fabulous views of the city. The London Tower was facinating and we saw the changing of the passport there.

Beautiful Cathedral. Need to be in shape to climb stairs to the whispering Gallery. There is a lift but it didn't work. Can't take pictures from the gallery.. Steps are quite steep. Beautiful architecture and paintings.

St Paul's Cathedral was an experience I am so grateful to have had. Everywhere you look there is evidence of God's love for us and His sacrifice on our behalf. It was a powerful reminder that He is with us. I highly recommend everyone seeing this beautiful monument to God.
Well worth the price.

Our guide Mark was incredible. Learned many new things about London! I felt it was efficient but gave us enough time at each stop to really see what we need to see.

The Whispering Gallery at St. Paul's

Located in the iconic dome of St. Paul's and reached by a dizzying 560 steps, this circular gallery is known as the Whispering Gallery because of its unique acoustics. Try it out by standing at one side of the dome and whispering to friends and family at the other end! If you've still got some energy left, scale the 117 steps to the Stone Gallery, followed by 166 steps to reach the Golden Gallery, both of which afford spectacular panoramic views of the city.

Please note: The Whispering Gallery is currently closed to visitors.
