Sir Christopher Wren’s iconic dome design has been a major feature of the London skyline for more than 300 years and St Paul’s has become a much-loved part of London. From Canaletto’s oil paintings to Mary Poppins, popular culture has embraced St Paul’s and, having survived the chaos and destruction of the Blitz, it has become a symbol of hope for the city of London.
Visitors can attend religious services free of charge. However, to experience everything St. Paul’s has to offer, you will need to buy a ticket. For your ticket you can explore the crypt where Lord Nelson and the Duke of Wellington are interred, but many more famous figures have memorials, like Florence Nightingale, William Blake, J.W. Turner, Lawrence of Arabia and Sir Alexander Fleming.
The main cathedral hall is filled with artwork and elaborate metalwork from the likes of Henry Moore and Holman Hunt. But if you’re feeling brave the only way to go is up. Amongst the gods you can visit the famous whispering gallery or the vertiginous golden gallery which sits 111 meters above the streets of London.
After scaling the height of St. Paul’s it’s likely you will have developed an appetite. A quick walk over the Thames takes you to Bankside where restaurants and cafes surround Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre. Or, you can stay local and try the First Dates brasserie in Paternoster Square, or head to the City where Marco Pierre White and Jason Atherton have restaurants.
