Don’t miss visiting one of the most iconic attractions in all of England – St Paul’s Cathedral. You’ll explore Sir Christopher Wren’s masterpiece on your own, using an audio/video guide that provides you with the fascinating history of the cathedral; stories about historical events, including how the church survived the Blitz during World War II; and a touch screen with close-up photos and interviews from cathedral experts.

Highlights

  • Flexibility to customize your itinerary to your own preferences
  • Instant Confirmation
  • Recorded commentary by audio headphones
Experience the whole of St Paul's Cathedral – a mainstay of the London skyline – on a self-guided tour. Designed by famous English architect Sir Christopher Wren, the current cathedral was completed in 1708, after the Great Fire of London ruined Old St Paul’s in 1666. The cathedral has always been associated with significant British events, including the wedding of Prince Charles to Lady Diana Spencer, Diamond Jubilee celebrations for Queen Victoria and an 80th birthday service for Queen Elizabeth II.

With your entrance ticket, head inside and pick up your audio/video guide, available in nine languages (see below for a list). You’ll tour the cathedral on your own, listening to the audio commentary and using your touch screen for historical tidbits and information about the significance of the cathedral throughout English history.

Begin in the cathedral’s crypt, with its memorials, tombs and monuments of important Brits like Lord Nelson and the Duke of Wellington. Climb upstairs to the Whispering Gallery - giving you a magnificient view of the cathedral - the exterior Stone Gallery and eventually the Golden Gallery with its panoramic views of the capital.

As you walk around, marvel at the soaring dome, the glittering mosaics, the intricate stone carving and the breathtaking view down the central nave toward the quire aisle.

Really impressing. The ascent to the top of the dome is long, but is divided into three parts also, the steps of the first part are shorter, so one gets accustomed to the effort. The whispering effect is difficult to realize because there are so many whispering people at the same time that the whispers interfere with each other. The audiovisual is very efficient. Apart from the historical comments, examples of musical performances are given in it. The chief organist plays the marvelous Finale of Saint-Saens' third symphony aka the melody of the mice in the Babe movie.

Facinating history, a very inspiring place, and a wonderful location to get views of London. It has a lot to offer different people. It may be religious, historical, architectural, family history or just a tourist. Highly recommended
