As practicing Protestants, my wife and I found St Paul's to be a comfortable religious home away from home for Pound Sterling 16 each (senior rate). We participated in the 12:30 pm, 30 minute Eucharist and had a nice light lunch in the Cafe in...More

The architecture of this Cathedral is amazing. Underground, the tombs of famous Englishmen with historic notes. First floor amazing views to the roof. The artwork here is made of tiny pieces of ceramic, not painted, and reflects the light beautifully. We were appalled to find...More

With your admission you gain access to the galleries above, which you must not miss. You can also join a guided tour for the same price, which was excellent.

City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to
its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile
in the world, the financial district known simply as
“The City” is one of London's most historic and
fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office
towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with
Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually
every era in between, including Christopher Wren's

Dear veeta v, So long as a card can be recognised by our staff as being a valid (i.e. not expired) photo ID issued by an educational organisation (i.e. your university) then that would suffice. We don't only offer a... More
