If you book the tickets online, you safe two pounds per adult. At the entrance you get an audio guide, which is very convenient. For visiting the complete cathedral including the crypt and the dome you definitely need 2 hours.

ST Pauls is so much more than only a cathedral! The architecture, the skills of the artisans, the history that has been reserved there is too overwhelming to do justice in describing it! A climb to the whispering gallery and even further to the outside...More

The paintings, murals, and architecture of this old cathedral are beautiful, and the view from the top of the tower are worth the climb.

We went up the full 500+ stairs to the top. Great experience and amazing view of the city. The history within the walls of this great cathedral is unbelievable.

Visited for the Evensong service and it was beautiful. Arrive early and you may be able to sit by the choir. Beautiful church and an easy to follow service.

I do not believe there are allocated times, aside from the opening hours. We turned up, and brought a ticket as a spur of the moment thing.
