What a gorgeous cathedral. It is a definite MUST visit in London. Tickets may be purchased at the door or in advance and be prepared for a bag check. We began by walking throughout the main level, and were lucky enough to be able to...More

I visited St Pails Cathedral on Sunday for the 10.15 Service, it was wonderful and I really enjoyed hearing the organ and choir.

The highlight will be the tombs in the catacombs if you are not climbing up to the top. The free visitor guided tour is great for information. No photography within.

We attended Evensong at 5:00 on Friday evening. No matter how often you see this magnificent structure, it will take your breathe away. Christopher Wren’s masterpiece.

The architecture and creation of Sir Christopher Wren is an overwhelming delight and to think it narrowly escaped destruction from fire / bombing in world war 2 is remarkable
