We are open for sightseeing visits again. Please read more about the changes we have brought in to keep our visitors and staff safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. We have introduced 30 minute entry timeslots for all visits to help us manage our safe capacity requirements in the Cathedral. From arrival please respect 2 metre physical distancing (approximately 4 Cathedral floor tiles) between your household party and other visitors. From 17 October, in line with the London COVID alert level, please only visit with people from within your household or support bubble.
Please note that the Whispering Gallery remains closed to the public until at least January 2021. The Stone Gallery above it is open. Due to current physical distancing guidelines, the Golden Gallery will be temporarily closed upon our sightseeing reopening.
Already have a valid Annual Pass, Friend of St Paul's membership, open dated ticket, voucher or another visit entitlement? Please make your free entry timeslot reservation.
Reservations are valid for the selected visit date and 30 minute entry timeslot.
We have temporarily reduced how far in advance you can book for. You can currently select a visit date up to one month in the future. Entry timeslots go offsale upon their start time.
You will receive your timeslot reservation as an E-Ticket. When you visit you must also bring your existing valid visit entitlement. If this is a ticket or E-ticket with a QR code on the top left corner issued by St Paul's Cathedral you can have it scanned and validated along with your timeslot reservation E-ticket at the fast track access point. Otherwise please have them validated at a customer service till point.
You may enter at any time during the entry timeslot booked for on your visit date. Please note the Cathedral is usually open for sightseeing entry Monday to Saturday, 8.30am (changing to 10.00am from 5 October 2020) to 4.00pm. Sightseeing usually ends at 4.30pm. The average visit length is two hours.
