St Paul’s Cathedral Private Tour Itinerary
St Paul’s Cathedral stands at 365 ft high: an ft for every day of the year, and every day of the year it stands as a welcoming beacon to all.
Be ready for a fascinating tour around this baroque beauty, which dates back to 1711. You will hear stories of royal weddings, see famous burials and take in the delightful ambiance inside. Plus you will have the opportunity to climb the steps to the top of the 2nd largest dome in the world and enjoy 360 views of London.
St Paul’s Cathedral symbolizes peace, hope, and defiance, with the latter being very prevalent during World War II. The 1940s brought devastation to London, with many buildings being turned to ashes, with that many feared St Paul’s Cathedral would be one of them.
The Prime Minister during this time was Sir Winston Churchill and it’s said he woke every morning during the London Blitz asking “Is St Paul’s still there?”, he knew that with the morale of London hanging on by a thread, losing St Paul’s could be the final straw to the Londoners mental state. But with 1000’s volunteers watching over the building 24/7 St Paul’s survived and remains today a symbol of defiance.

We can arrange a variety of private, exclusive experiences in St Paul’s Cathedral including areas not usually open to the public such as the Geometric staircase, the Model Room as well as the Cathedral Floor, the American Chapel, OBE Chapel, Nelson’s Chamber, and the Crypt. This could end in a brunch or lunch in the exclusive Wren Suite.
If you would prefer an exclusive evening experience, you would visit the cathedral completely privately after all visitors have left following Evensong.
You would visit the Cathedral floor, the Quire, The American Chapel, the Triforium which would include the Geometric staircase and Model Room, and then taken to Nelsons Chamber and the Crypt. This would be a very informative and intimate tour of the Cathedral and see some of the spaces the public do not normally get to see.
