For two nights only, St Paul’s will be opening its doors to give visitors an exclusive opportunity to explore the Cathedral after hours. You will be able to discover objects that were damaged in the Great Fire of London, view the Out of the Fire exhibition, access the tombs and memorials of British heroes in the Crypt, and simply admire the architecture as you walk around the magnificent building. An added bonus of these special evenings is that you can take photographs without anyone shushing or shaking their head at you. Just don’t bring a tripod — they are up there on the list of most annoying things to take to a tourist attraction, right next to selfie sticks.
St Paul’s Cathedral was destroyed in the Great Fire of 1666, so these evenings are a special opportunity to discover pre-fire artefacts and learn about the challenges that Sir Christopher Wren faced when re-constructing the historic building. There will be interactive guides and family trails, all of which are included in the admission price.
Tickets cost £10 for adults, £9 for concessions and £5 for children. You can find them here or buy them on the night.
