A great place to go in London. There is a staircase that goes right to the top, where you can see all over London. Unfortunately, there is no lift to the top, due to the age of the building, so bear in mind that you'll have to climb the spiral staircase.

Iconic building that we were glad that we were able to visit. We took a self-guided tour, and were able to see a lot of the cathedral. A little strange to have the church service going on, while people milled about and took photos. We went everywhere on the main floor and downstairs. Very impressive.

We booked online with an entry time in the late afternoon on a Monday and were able to enter with no queue. There was much more to see here than I recall from my first visit over 40 years ago. The audio guide was invaluable. It's an architectural triumph and quite impressive to see in person. Unfortunately the Whispering Gallery was closed. Although it was high season (mid-August), it was not too overly crowded. (It's hard to feel crowded in such an immense place.) Allow at least one hour for a thorough visit, more if you are a true history buff.

Always walk past St Paul’s, but have never been in… Decided to remedy that and bought two tickets online (via Network Rail’s 2for1 offer). Wasn’t disappointed. The Cathedral is everything you’d expect it to be - huge and ornate. I’m an atheist, but you can’t not be impressed. Went to the top. Be warned - as there were no signs that we saw - these are a lot of steps. Half of these are on spiral, iron staircases and some of the doors/corridors are low and narrow… so not for the unfit or overly wide… The views at the top are well worth it though. The whispering gallery is currently closed. The crypt is equally impressive, although the ‘cafe’ was a little bit basic.

Tickets are slightly on the pricey side (£42 for 2), but the Church is interesting to explore. Some interesting items in the Crypt, with several famous British people buried there. Also if you can brave the stairs some great views from the top of the building.

Visited St Pauls and used their excellent self paced audio/video guide. The guide encompasses the history, the architecture, beliefs and other fascinating insights into this historic cathedral. Most areas are available to view including the staircase to the dome (lot of steps and a lot of puff - not for those who dislike heights or small spaces) and the crypt. Had only intended to spend a couple of hours, but stayed for the day. If you catch it right, you can take in a service or hear choir practice.

The portable tourist guide was very complete and helped us to visit every corner of the cathedral with all the information needed to appreciate its history, art and architecture.

A very impressive London landmark, although rather expensive to go into. Probably not as much history to explore as a lot of other cathedrals - most of what is there is quite narrowly focused on more recent figures buried there than on the older history of the Diocese of London. If you're interested in the historical figures of the 19th century in particular, the graves here are a must-see - Nelson, Wellington, Nightingale etc. We missed out on visiting the galleries, but these look very impressive from the ground. There is a lot to explore in the crypt as well as above ground so allow plenty of time (especially given the ticket price). One thing to watch out for is that the café, gift shop and toilets are all outside the ticket line, so keep your tickets handy to get back in and don't visit these areas between 'last admissions' and closing time/Evensong as you won't be able to get back in other than to attend Evensong. (This may mean making a deliberate point of timing your trip to the toilet so you don't lose out on your last half hour!)

Well worth the money, we took the audio tour and what an amount of information it gave you. Was better than walking around reading notices. The staff kept you well informed of the times of the services held while you are on your visit and you can join the service if you wish. We bought the two for 1 tickets so made it cheaper.
