“Outstanding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

I have been to many cathedrals and churches in Europe, even the famous St. Pietro in Vatican, but I have not been so impressed as I was in this cathedral. It is incredibly beautiful and impressive. It is so big and it has secret galleries-the whisper corridor-where you feel like in a different world! Do not miss it!It is amazing!

“Ouaou...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

Not easy to explain.. It was really really nice inside.. They give you ipods to listen to audio on your tour (included in the price), and you get to learn everything related to this church. Architecture is great. Has Ground and lower Ground Floors (Crypt), so you need at least an hour. You do not want to leave this place...

“Peace and majesty in the heart of the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

St Paul's is majestic and contains a good deal of history in itself and of London. The side chapels also provide space for private meditation.

“St Paul's Cathedral - awe-inspiring!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

Following the Lord Mayor's Show, we visited the impressive St Paul's Cathedral which was free on this occasion, although we did have to pay to go up to the Whispering Gallery. There were plenty of people available to ask questions of and to give directions and advice. We enjoyed magnificent views of the interior of the dome and the altar. The climb up to the Whispering Gallery was quite something - 200+ steps winding their way up the dome - but it was well worth it! The views of London's skyline and landmarks from the roof was fantastic even though it was not a particularly bright day.
