Best time to visit
Choosing the best time for a St. Paul’s Cathedral tour depends on what’s most important to you. If you want the best weather, then visit London in the summer. But, keep in mind that this is when London is most crowded. If you want cheaper accommodations in this very expensive city, arrive during the winter. It’s cold, but not unbearable. Wear warm clothes. Spring and Autumn bring milder weather and smaller crowds. But, bring an umbrella for the rain.
Getting there
Getting to St. Paul’s Cathedral is easy! The closest Underground station is St. Paul’s on the Central Line. But, you can also take the District and Circle lines to the Mansion House or Blackfriars stations. From either, it’s less than a 5 minute walk to St. Paul’s Cathedral. If you are taking the bus, lines 4, 8, 11, 15, 17, 23, 25, 26, 56, 76, 100, 172, 242, and 521 all stop near St. Paul’s Cathedral. Finally, you can also take the train to the City Thameslink, Blackfriars, or Cannon Street stations.
Money saving tips
Low on cash? No problem! You can enter St. Pauls for free! All you have to do is attend mass. Evening mass probably presents the most interest option. This “Choral Evensong” delivers choir music and other vocals throughout. What a steal!
