With its massive dome punctuating the London skyline, St. Paul's Cathedral is one of the city's most distinct sights. Both visually and ceremonially significant, the cathedral has hosted the funerals of Lord Nelson, the Duke of Wellington, Sir Winston Churchill, and Margaret Thatcher, and the wedding of Prince Charles and Princess Diana. Climb to the top of the dome, pausing in the Whispering Gallery to hear murmurs from 30 m (100 ft) away, before walking up 271 more steps for panoramic views of London from the Golden Gallery. Head down to the crypt to view the tombs of national heroes, such as Lord Nelson and the Duke of Wellington. Learn about the cathedral's history in Oculus, a 270-degree film exhibit. For more information about the venue's detailed mosaics, paintings, and architecture, take a guided tour or pick up a touchscreen multimedia guide at the entrance. After touring the cathedral, you can enjoy traditional English tea in the Restaurant at St. Paul’s.

A great value family attraction. Audio tour fantastic for adults and children alike. Walk up to the top is well worth it. Whispering gallery is amazing, be patient. So much to learn about. Take your time and you can spend a few hours exploring.
Stunning building, with stunning views from the top. We easily spent a couple of hours here on a Friday afternoon, and it wasn't crowded at all. We took the stairs to the top, not for the faint-hearted but a nice challenge if you're up to it. We didn't eat (had lunch before we arrived) but the options looked good. Great gift shop too!
