Although the green dome is now an off white, it is still easily recognisable on the sky line, it is an amazing and beautiful building both inside and out and definitely worth a look.

St Paul's remains the icon of London from its construction by Wren in the aftermath of 17th century struggles through its survival through the blitz. Attended Remembrance Day service and utterly spectacular location with the most solemn duties.

Go to the top, the view is spectacular. Just be prepared for over 1000 steps up to the top and it gets extremely narrow to the point of having to craw up, was not prepared for that!

If you only make it to one of the many amazing Cathedrals and Churches in London this should be it. It is breathtaking and the climb to the roof, while challenging is worth every stair.

We visited St Paul's in August using Tesco club card reward vouchers. What a brilliant time we had! We stared in the cathedral itself and after 30 mins the kids did start to get a bit sick of looking at the crypts and lots of...More

Although very commercialized, St. Paul’s is a magnificent cathedral. It was a good idea to have a 20 minute guided tour because we learnt so much more about the history of the building. Definitely a must visit on your London itinerary.
