Meet your private guide near St Paul’s Cathedral and start your 3.5-hour of London and its churches. Luckily for you, your guide is a specialist in art history, so have any questions ready and learn more about London's history, culture, architecture and art.

As you walk, hear stories about Sir Christopher Wren, the acclaimed English architect who designed more than 50 churches in London after the Great Fire of London. His masterpiece in the capital? St Paul’s Cathedral — it’s sure to be a highlight of your tour.

Step inside the famous cathedral to see mementos and monuments linked to Brits such as Winston Churchill and the Duke of Wellington. Climb up to the Whispering Gallery, where a mere whisper can supposedly travel around the walls. Other must-sees include the nave with its view of the dome, and the chapels and crypt.

As well as St Paul’s Cathedral, your tour also takes in several other churches that were designed by Sir Christopher Wren. Visit St Stephen Wallbrook, an Anglican church, as well as St Mary Abchurch with its handsome dome. The pint-sized place of worship sits in the heart of the City of London and is home to attention-grabbing work by the sculptor Grinling Gibbons.

Your tour then finishes near Cannon Street in the city.

Excellent and the tour guide Olga was knowledgeable. The climb to the very top and standing on the open outside viewing gallery is not for the faint-hearted but what a view of London. I have lived in London all my life, first time into St.Pauls, I never realised the history that is there. Gotta go again.
