We attended church here and really enjoyed the service and especially the music. The end of the service featured their very talented organist playing the finale of Dvorak's "New World" arranged for organ. Gorgeous. I took a star off because the staff was just a...More

Yes 18 pounds to enter is expensive but in the case of St Paul's Cathedral, it is worth it, especially if you get the audio to help you with your visit. Some may compare it to St Peters in Rome which is free to enter...More

Spent some time seeing this wonderful Christopher Wren architectural wonder. A must see. However admittance of 18 pounds, I think is high.

Would recommend the audio tour. Lots to see. Take a few minutes to sit and enjoy the splendor of it all. Hopefully you'll get to hear the organ played. Really nice shop to purchase gifts. Unfortunately afraid of heights so was unable to go upstairs....More

Magnificent architecture, full of symbols and still, with some luck, you can hear some musician playing the gigantic organ.

Christopher Wren's beautiful creation us still a delight to behold, both inside and out, and definitely a symbol of London itself. I love approaching it from the Millenium pedestrian bridge side.

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
