St Paul's Cathedral, London Reviews - Write a Review
The cathedral is a beautiful experience. The audio tour guides you through various parts of the cathedral at your own pace and also grants access to the whispering galleries in the dome. There are also free guided tours (check schedule). The tickets are well worth it. The service is free to attend. The tickets just let you see more of the church with a very educational guide. If you're able to, do take the chance to climb the 227 stairs to the whispering galleries. The view is like no other. Also, stop to see the Mary and Martyr digital media exhibits. They are intriguing and tug at your heart. Truly wonderful experience!
Reading other reviews it is clear that I am in a minority. First of all I thought this visit horrendously expensive. £18 for an adult - £16 for concessions - struck me, quite simply, as profiteering. It is good to know that many, probably most, of the country's more historic and ancient cathedrals do not charge at all. York and Canterbury do, as you might expect, and some of the others as well - but much more modestly, and many make no charge at all AND allow photography quite freely which is banned in St Paul's (though I noticed many who simply ignored that). (Worcester make a modest charge for photography but not an entrance fee.) When there is no charge, I am always willing to make a good donation - usually I give £10, occasionally more for my favourite cathedrals. The other thing I found in St Paul's was how utterly miserable, unfriendly and generally brusque were all the staff. This was especially disappointing I thought. The one really good thing was the audio/video. This was truly excellent and certainly I would expect to pay a decent sum for that. The trouble is most punters do not recognise value and so will not pay for things according to the true worth unless they are made to. that is why St Paul's have to charge such a huge amount I suppose. I would willingly have donated £10 and paid, say, £5 for the audio/video. I would have felt that fair and reasonable but as it was I came away thinking I had been fleeced. I accept that St Paul's has a rich history, but architecturally it doesn't do a great deal for me. I have been here once and it is most unlikely I will come again - despite having a year long pass for gift aiding my fee.
Fabulous. Worth the entrance fee cafe and tea room. Steeped in history.Head phones included in price. Lots of bi lingual staff and a gift shop and toilets The whispering gallery is included in the price too. A fabulous day out
Went for the Christmas Carol which is free - once a year thing and it was a good experience. Enjoyed the mass and the fact that the event was with no charges. The acoustic in the hall was good, the rich history, paintings on ceiling and was simply beautiful.
It's quite expensive but definitely worth it. The awesome and very informative information guide is included in the price and I'd definitely recommend picking it up and listening to the information. The staff can help you and the ones I've met are very friendly. Inside, the cathedral is just like most others, but the dome is quite special. I'd recommend going up all the stairs (it wasn't actually that bad, and that's something coming from me with a pure loathing for anything related to sport) and enjoy the marvellous view. Not recommended for those with claustrophobia though, as the stairs further up don't give you much room. The highest point doesn't have much room either, you literally just squeeze past people, take pics and try to enjoy the view and then leave. It's a one way circle around the top. All in all it is definitely worth it!
