Private St Paul’s Cathedral Tour

Our St Paul’s Cathedral Tour takes in one of London’s most impressive attractions and then goes on to explore the true City of London. Follow your guide through a maze of lanes and marvel at some original Roman architecture surrounded by the current financial heart of the city.

St Paul’s Cathedral is a beautiful church with a unique history. Built in just 35 years by one architect in a consistent style, its position in this part of the London skyline is protected by law. From the main entrance, we are afforded an unobstructed view down the cathedral, which is a great time to appreciate both the size and style of this church.

Why take a St Paul’s Cathedral guided tour?

  1. Unparalleled Expertise
    All of our guides at Let Me Show You London are Blue Badge Guides, which is the highest rating for a tour guide in the UK.
  2. Skip the Line!
    You’ll save valuable sightseeing time with our skip-the-line entry at St Paul’s Cathedral. No waiting, just head straight inside with your guide.

What to Expect on a Tour of St Paul’s Cathedral?

We’ll begin our St Paul’s tour by exploring the main floor first, which houses memorials of many national heroes, as well as many works of art both old and new.

We then have the opportunity to climb right to the top of the church! We’ll pass the whispering, stone, and golden viewing galleries along the way. A terrific view is your reward for the 528 steps you must climb!

From the highest point to the lowest, we’ll continue to the crypt in St Paul’s. We will witness the final resting place of many of the heroes memorialised on the main floor, such as Admiral Nelson and The Duke of Wellington. Your guide will make sure you don’t miss two models of the cathedral, an excellent comparison between the old Gothic structure and the “modern” English baroque version.

This will complete our tour of St Paul’s Cathedral itself. But don’t worry, there’s plenty more to see!

Touring Beyond St Paul’s Cathedral

Once outside, our St Paul’s Cathedral Tour continues. Strolling around the churchyard gives you perspective on the size of this iconic building we just explored. Your guide will take you for one final view of St Paul’s against the modern city skyline…don’t worry, we don’t have to climb any stairs this time!

We now make our way to the heart of the city: the financial district. The London Stock Exchange, The Bank of England, and The Royal Exchange are all based in this one square mile. Listen to some interesting statistics about the current financial world and learn about the stories behind all these beautiful buildings.

Follow your guide through the little lanes, rows, and passages that make up the oldest part of London, originally established by the Romans. The City of London is a wonderful place to see a mixture of architecture, from parts of original Roman walls to brand new office blocks.

This tour is a “must do” while in London Marina was an outstanding tour guide. Clear communication, great choice of spots to highlight, very good tempo to tour (not too slow or too fast). Loads of great information. Shared just enough history to delight me without making my wife’s eyes glaze over. Tower would be my “must do” for a London visit. And, Marina’s tour was superb.

Fantastic! Marina was superb. I took this tour with my husband and three sons (20,18.17). Loved that we had a small group and could ask questions. Note this tours doesn't include skip the line tickets. We ended up seeing the crown jewels at the end of the day to avoid the ridiculously long line.

Best Tour of London Tower Denisa gave us an amazing tour of London Tower. She was knowledgeable and provided a wonderfully historical tour, holding the attention of a 14 and 15 year old. Denisa is top notch. Try and secure her when you book any tour! Loved hearing about the history of the ravens and, of course, the palace intrigue.

Great Tour! Sarah was amazing and gave us a great introduction to York! We only had a few days to spend there and this was a wonderful way to make a list of the places we wanted to visit. Highly recommend!

Wonderful Tour! Kids learned so much! I have never had a tour in a museum before, but wow. I will definitely do it again! Our guide explained the history and folklore behind the paintings. It was like a friend taking you to her favorite places. Our children age 9 and 11 were able to remember what paintings we saw and why they were important. 10/10 would definitely recommend!

LOVE Denisa! We had a group with 6 kids and she was absolutely incredible! Very informative and extremely engaging with the children! We did a trip to Paris with a “children specialist” tour and she was just as good if not better!! It felt like we were hanging out with a local friend from the first minute we met her. We recommend her highly and we hope to book again with her in the future!

Private walking tour of London and private tour of Tower of London Our family of four took two tours on two different days with Denisa. We took a walking tour of London as well as a tour of the Tower of London. We found her to be extremely friendly and knowledgeable. She had a wealth of information about everything that she showed us. She even knew smal details like the names of the ravens at the Tower! We would highly recommend any tour with Denisa!

Wonderful walk around... We had a great day with Denisa - we are a family with two relatively small children and we saw a lot of this wonderful city (Westminster, St. Pauls, Tower etc.). Everything was well prepared and with all this specific knowledge it is much easier to get around - very quick and to the point. Denisa knows a lot of the background and she made it very targeted to the kids. She gave us a few great tips on restaurants and other things to see by ourselves. Very recommendable !

Brilliant London Visit Living at the other end of the country we don't visit too often, or know London very well, but Denisa made lots of very useful and practical suggestions and made sure that we fitted in everything that we were looking for. Her knowledge of the City is excellent, whether it is of the tourist haunts, the historical areas or shopping and eating. She even helped direct us to a great area to stay when visiting the City, which was handy for everything we wanted to do. On top of all that the 2 hour tour we did with her showed us St Paul's and beyond, including the Tower, an area we hadn't really seen before. Lots of information and a good pace with a friendly and very flexible approach. We would not hesitate in recommending her for anyone else visiting London, whether they think they know where they would like to go, or have no idea and we will be booking Denisa again for future visits. First class.
