Self-Guided Visits

Self-Guided Visits for UK Schools

Explore St Paul’s Cathedral

St Paul’s welcomes thousands of students and their teachers through its doors every year as self-guiding visitors. Our aim is to ensure that every single young learner has an unforgettable experience in the Cathedral and is able to get the very most out of their visit. To fully support these visits, and all those preparing for them, we have developed a wide range of online resources, including downloadable trails, and booklets for self-guiding schools which you will find by clicking on the links below. If you book a Self-Guided Visit you will also be provided with a free Resource Pack containing a variety of activities to do in the classroom before and after your visit to the Cathedral. Downloads:

  • Self-Guiding Teachers’ Manual
  • Downloadable Resources
  • Additional Resources

    Schools from outside of the UK are welcome to visit St Paul’s Cathedral but will need to book via the Admissions Department. Please click here for further details.

  • A Spectacular View

    For a small extra charge you can book a climb up to the galleries that line our famous dome. Rain or shine you are guaranteed an unforgettable opportunity to see London from what was once this city’s tallest building. Please note: Due to ongoing restrictions at the Cathedral since reopening, closures to the galleries remain in place. Currently, schools can access the galleries on Monday and Friday only from October – December. As the situation is subject to change, we are not taking any gallery bookings from January onwards. Please indicate if you would like to visit the galleries in the extra details part of your booking enquiry. We will be in touch closer to your visit date to confirm if this will be possible.

    Adults Go free

    Accompanying adults can visit free (up to a maximum of 6 with a group of 30 students). Staff providing 1-2-1 support for SEND students are also free. Extra adults will incur a charge.
