St. Paul's Cathedral, London

4.5
With its massive dome punctuating the London skyline, St. Paul's Cathedral is one of the city's most distinct sights. Both visually and ceremonially significant, the cathedral has hosted the funerals of Lord Nelson, the Duke of Wellington, Sir Winston Churchill, and Margaret Thatcher, and the wedding of Prince Charles and Princess Diana. Climb to the top of the dome, pausing in the Whispering Gallery to hear murmurs from 30 m (100 ft) away, before walking up 271 more steps for panoramic views of London from the Golden Gallery. Head down to the crypt to view the tombs of national heroes, such as Lord Nelson and the Duke of Wellington. Learn about the cathedral's history in Oculus, a 270-degree film exhibit. For more information about the venue's detailed mosaics, paintings, and architecture, take a guided tour or pick up a touchscreen multimedia guide at the entrance. After touring the cathedral, you can enjoy traditional English tea in the Restaurant at St. Paul’s.

  • This is a must see when in London! I would highly recommend taking the tour to the top. There are some incredible views once you get up there. It is a bit of a hike and the stairs are steep, but it's worth it. The Church itself was beautiful and has many different sections to explore. In my opinion, St. Paul’s is a must see when in London.
  • Absolutely stunning cathedral! The details inside are breathtaking. My partner and I didn't get enough the time to see the catacombs but the lady at the reception made the necessary so that we would get free tickets valid for a year that can be used for our next visit. We got them few days later at our address in France.
