I'd never visited St Paul's before, despite having lived in London for 20 years. So when my nephew came from Australia I thought we should go. It really is magnificent, and the hundreds of stairs to the whispering gallery are worth it for the views. But it is immensely expensive, although some people were coming in for evensong as we...

If you are in London you need to visit here. The sheer size of the cathedral will leave your jaw on the floor. The style and design is amazing and the tour to the crypt and to the very top just added to the cathedrals appeal. A must see.

Bit ridiculous never to have been in before, but pleased that we now have, and in particular that we joined a free guided tour (excellent guide, Gillian...). Learned much, enjoyed all of it. Hadn't sufficient time to do the Whispering Gallery etc, so must try to go again.

This cathedral is a must see when visiting London 5 min walk away from St. Paul's underground station with easy connections to many of the major towns in south east of England. The cathedral has many things to admire including it's dome.

We spent a very interesting afternoon in St Paul's Cathedral and we still didn't finish our tour. Whilst the price of entry seemed a little high it was good value. The audio tour and guided tours are free with the entry fee and cover the knave, choir, chancel, transepts, crypt and galleries. It is quite a haul up to the... More

We went there for the view. We had a wonderful weather (which I understand not so often) and got a beautiful panoramic view of the city after 538 steps of climbing. If you are healthy adult with right shoes and weather is good, this is a must! Cathedral has beautiful inside and many historical points. I would love to go... More

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.
