What to expect
Entry to St Paul’s Cathedral in London lets you admire the structure's majestic beauty. Designed in the late 1600s by Sir Christopher Wren, St. Paul’s was built to replace the original cathedral that was damaged during the Great Fire of London. Since then, the Cathedral has resisted fires and wars, standing as an iconic symbol of London.
Once inside the cathedral, you can take advantage of a multimedia guide that allows you to fully understand the structure and its components. You can see the Grand Organ, an artifact from the cathedral’s creation, and the High Altar, a replacement for the original destroyed in World War II.
You can also journey down into the crypt. Not only does this space serve as the resting ground for famous figures such as Lord Nelson and the first Duke of Wellington, the crypt acts as structural support for the entire cathedral above.
After exploring the depths of the cathedral, head up to the cathedral’s magnificent dome and admire London’s skyline from any of the three galleries. Truly a stairway to heaven.
