Quingo Accessible Attractions: St. Paul’s Cathedral

At Quingo we love sharing places with you that you maybe thought weren’t accessible enough for your mobility scooter, but where you can enjoy a great day out!

This week we’re sharing a slice of culture with you, with one of the most famous and recognisable sights of London.

The Cathedral

Sitting on Ludgate Hill, at the highest point of London, St. Paul’s Cathedral is host to national events and traditions. Currently the seat of the Bishop of London, St. Paul’s was dedicated to Paul the Apostle more than 1400 years ago, thought to have been built between 1675 and 1710. Today however, it is a working church with hourly prayer and daily services. The famous dome, on the top of the Cathedral, is still amongst the highest in the world and can be seen for miles.



The sightseeing ticket is the best way to see everything that St. Paul’s Cathedral has to offer, and get an all-round insight into the history of the Cathedral. You will be able to follow in the footsteps of royalty and political leaders on the Cathedral floor, and experience the unique acoustics of the dome in the Whispering Gallery. After that you can visit the crypt where some of the UK’s greatest heroes are buried. You can get information on the sightseeing ticket on the St. Paul’s Cathedral website where information on the tours that are available can also be found.

The Collections

The collections at St. Paul’s Cathedral are a unique record of the spiritual, liturgical, architectural, administrative and social life of this outstanding building. There are many artefacts that you’ll have chance to look at in depth, but some of the highlights are Tyndale’s New Testament and The William II Charter. Before your visit you can plan what you want to see by exploring the collections search.



For such a historical building, you’ll be surprised at just how accessible it has been made for mobility scooters. The main west front is famously accessed by 24 steps. However, the south churchyard entrance is completely step free and leads to a modern lift serving the crypts and the Cathedral floor. For anyone who doesn’t feel comfortable using a lift however, there is a ramp at the north entrance. Be sure to contact the Cathedral in advance if you wish to use this on 0207 246 8357.

The quire and sacrarium have a small user-operated chairlift, and assistance is always available should it be required. A carer’s entrance is also offered free on arrival when purchasing a standard sightseeing ticket.

Any other information you may require prior to your arrival can be found on the St. Paul’s Cathedral website.
