Designed by Sir Christopher Wren in the late seventeenth century, St Paul’s Cathedral is one of the world’s most beautiful and best-loved buildings. A potent symbol of the life of the nation, its stones have absorbed the hopes, fears, sorrows and joys of generations; an enduring symbol of both the past and the present. Majestic, timeless and atmospheric, St Paul’s welcomes many thousands of visitors through its doors each year for services, concerts, debates, educational events, performing arts and sightseeing. Recently transformed by state-of-the-art restoration techniques, the light flooding the internal space of the Cathedral highlights the luminescent Portland stone and brings mosaics, carvings, paintings and sculpture to life.
Visitors and worshippers can witness Wren’s original vision and see his Cathedral as crisp and magnificent as the day it was completed. Gazing up into Wren’s crowning glory, the lofty and awe-inspiring Dome of St Paul’s, is just one of the highlights of a visit to this remarkable Cathedral. But of course, the pinnacle of any trip to St Paul’s has to be the winding journey up the spiral staircase to the Whispering Gallery to sample its unique audio effects before travelling up and out to the Stone and Golden Galleries, which afford a panoramic view of London that is second to none.
Whether you’ve visited St Paul’s in the past or will be making your first trip, we can guarantee you won’t be disappointed.
Access to the Nelson Chamber for Wheelchairs is through the ramp by the Gallipoli Memorial until the end of February. When weddings take place there will be a restricted access through this chamber.
