Paying ticket

When paying for a combo ticket, the visitor is entitled to go into the Cathedral and also its Museum. To sustain the ongoing conservation and restoration projects the Metropolitan Chapter requests an entrance fee. It is our responsibility to sustain and maintain the historical artefacts of these entities and above all to preserve them for future generations to come.


When a visitor wants to enter the Cathedral for prayer he is invited to approach a member of our staff and he would be guided to the Chapel of the Blessed Sacrament.

An important note for the visitor

  • St Paul’s Cathedral is a place of worship. It is requested that you enter decently dressed. Shawls and wraps are provided at the entrance.
  • Please refrain as much as possible to wear Stiletto heels and narrow heeled shoes not to damage the inlaid marble flooring.
  • Photography is allowed in the church but the use of flash is forbidden.
  • No food and drinks are allowed in the Cathedral
  • The visitor may experience staggering or limitations when entering the Cathedral. This is due to either a large number of people visiting at the same time or because there would be the celebrations for the congregation. It is important therefore to follow any notification that the management might issue from time to time and also to follow the time of mass and other celebrations. Such measures are usually called upon when there are weddings, funerals or any other special occasion.
