Description

Join us for a series of atmospheric late openings of St Paul's

There are few places quite like St Paul’s at dusk, and to celebrate the beauty of Wren’s great church in the twilight hours we will once again be opening our doors for a series of summer late openings.

Explore the vast Cathedral Floor and Crypt. Marvel at the exquisite architecture and intricate mosaics. Experience the panoramic views over London at nightfall from the Stone or Golden Gallery. See where some of the nation’s most famous heroes and artists are buried and simply take-in the breathtaking calm of St Paul's.

There's also a new exhibition to discover - The Great Restoration of the 1920s - the extraordinary and little-known story of how on Christmas Eve 1924 St Paul’s Cathedral was served with a Dangerous Structures notice and was later closed for public safety.

Just like during a daytime visit, personal non-flash photography is permitted and encouraged at our Summer Lates.

For those Londoners who relish the opportunity to be tourists in their own city, touch screen multimedia guides packed with pictures, commentary and archive footage are included in nine languages.

For our younger visitors there is a dedicated version of the multimedia guide featuring Flame the Phoenix as well as family trails packed with fun facts and opportunities to find things, write creatively and draw pictures.

Throughout the evenings, drinks and light food will be available in the crypt cafe and the Cathedral shop will be open, offering a range of gifts and mementos.

St Paul's Cathedral Lates doors open at 7pm. Last admission is at 8.30pm and the last chance to climb up the Dome is at 8.45pm. Last orders in the cafe at 9pm. Visiting ends at 9.30pm.

Additional information about St Paul's Lates:

  • Please do not bring any bags or items which would be considered larger than typical airline hand baggage. Bags will be searched and there is no cloakroom so please try not to bring them if you can.
  • Tripods, monopods and selfie sticks are not permitted .
  • On the evening you'll be able to upgrade your Eventbrite Lates ticket into a St Paul's Annual Pass allowing free return visits for a year. This requires a donation of £4.20 per adult, £3.50 per concession or £1.70 per child. Please speak to visitor experience staff on the Cathedral Floor admission desks about upgrading before 8.45pm. Annual Passes can be used for visiting during daytime opening hours and can also be used to return to any remaining Lates this Summer (last date 29 August 2019).
  • Special offer in the Cathedral shop; receive a 10% discount off purchases over £5 (excluding stamps and sale items).
  • Please note that the Whispering Gallery is currently closed. Access to the Stone and Golden Galleries above it is unaffected.
  • Please be aware that the Golden and Stone Galleries get busy during our Summer Lates. So that as many people as possible can experience the Galleries, our Visitor Experience Team may ask you to keep moving on the Golden Gallery.
