One of the biggest church I have seen. It was Sunday when we visit and we could enter to the mass without entrance fee.

St. Paul’s is obviously steeped in history and one of London’s most recognizable attractions, but I still felt it could have done with a few tweaks. Although technologically advanced, I didn’t find the audio guide that appealing. It was basically an iPhone with headphones. It...More

This was the first of several church tours in London & Paris and probably my favorite. Impossible to fully comprehend the age and multiple rebuilds over the years. Be sure and climb the stairs to the whispering room or even the top if able.

So much history in one place. You can wander around, climb up to the dome, or visit the crypts. Bright and welcoming.

We went for the Christmas performance of Handel's Messiah. It's beautiful, the acoustics are really something else. I highly recommend going to a musical event there. Bring a warm jacket in the winter though.

This is a place you cannot miss in London. Booking tickets online helps to beat the long queue going in. The Cathedral is amazing and make sure to climb to the upper galleries. The view from roof top is awesome.

He is buried in the south isle at the east end of the crypt, surrounded by plaques of his family so I doubt if any appointment will be needed.
