St Paul’s Cathedral is a vibrant working church, a national treasure and a London icon. Designed by Sir Christopher Wren in the late 17th century, the Cathedral has been the Cathedral Church of the Diocese of London for over 1,400 years.
Our building provides a space for reflection, discovery, learning and debate. In 2019, we welcomed nearly two million people through our doors, to worship, sightsee, and attend a lively programme of concerts, educational events and performing arts. Although fewer people have attended since the pandemic, we are still welcoming hundreds of thousands of people to these services, events and to our wonderful building each year.
Although much of the cathedral is visitable for free there are sightseeing tours that are ticketed but will gain you access to attractions such as the Cathedral Floor and Crypt, the Dome Galleries, multimedia guides and any temporary exhibitions and installations that the Cathedral has on at the time of your visit.
