Route Map and Timetable

St Paul’s Cathedral
A cathedral dedicated to St Paul has stood in the highest point of the City of London for over 1,400 years. The current Cathedral (the fourth to occupy this location) was designed by celebrated architect Christopher Wren and is widely considered to be his greatest masterpiece. Completed in 1708, this cross-shaped building has been the backdrop to many key moments in British history and is an essential part of the London skyline thanks to its magnificent dome.

Visitors can discover the beauty of this place and much more with the Cathedral’s new multimedia guide. Featuring commentary from the Dean of St Paul’s, the Conservator and Director of Music and others, the guide cleverly weaves together contemporary photography, archive film footage and the voices of those who work in St Paul’s today.

Current Exhibition - ‘The Great Restoration of the 1920s’
A new exhibition called ‘The Great Restoration of the 1920s’ tells the little-known period in which St Paul’s Cathedral underwent a dangerous renovation process at the start of the 20th century. Featuring archive material and objects from the Cathedral’s collection, this is a chance for visitors to get a fascinating insight into the making of this building and what it took to make the Great Restoration a success.

Tower Bridge
Over 100 years ago, the Victorians built a bridge that has become one of London's most famous landmarks. High level walkways were built to allow people to cross the Thames whilst the Bridge was lifted to let tall ships sail past. Today these Walkways act as viewing galleries, giving visitors the most spectacular views across an ever changing London skyline.

Completed in 1894, Tower Bridge was instantly hailed as a London icon and one of the great engineering marvels of its age. Come inside to explore its history, uncover its secrets and to enjoy stunning views from its high-level Walkway, situated 42 metres above the River Thames.

The Walkways offer fantastic views of many of London's most famous sights, including St Paul's Cathedral, sky-scraping Canary Wharf, maritime Greenwich and The London Eye. Special viewing windows make photography easy.Victorian Engine Rooms house the original steam engines, awesome machines whose immense power once raised the bascules of the bridge. A “virtual bridge lift” shows how the bascules still rise today to let ships pass beneath the Walkway.
