St. Paul's Cathedral

Home > Attractions > St. Paul's Cathedral

St Paul's Cathedral is a busy working church. At the heart of life at St Paul's is the daily pattern of prayer and worship. Every day begins and ends with prayer. During hourly prayers visitors are invited to join in the Lordís Prayer, in their own language, as they pause and pray. Music is integral to the worshipping and educational life of the Cathedral. The Cathedral Choir, made up of Choristers and Vicars Choral, usually sing Evensong and the Sunday Sung Eucharist.

Whilst the Cathedral charges for those who wish to sightsee, it does not charge for people who want to worship. Daily services are held every day to which all are welcome to attend and those attending services do so at no cost. People seeking a place to be quiet and pray are admitted to the St Dunstan's Chapel free of charge. Admission on Sundays for all services is free and there is no sightseeing.


Step inside St Paulís and you can enjoy the cathedral's awe-inspiring interior, and uncover fascinating stories about its history.

Visitors can try out the acoustic quirks of the Whispering Gallery, climb to the Golden Gallery and enjoy breathtaking views across London, or take a moment for reflection and contemplation.
