Although most churches permit photography, many cathedrals ban it — including St Paul’s Cathedral, but that is about to change, for one evening only.

For a charge of £10, there will be an evening after hours opportunity to take photos within the building itself — something usually forbidden by stern admonishments from wandering volunteers to unwitting tourists.

There is also a competition, associated with the event, but for many, its the rare opportunity to stare at the opulent interior through the camera lens that will appeal the most.


The event takes place on the evening of 8th April 6:15pm to 8:30pm

The event is limited to 300 people, so it shouldn’t be too crowded inside.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    £10?! Money talks. Why not go down the donation route and people pay what they can afford?

    I am interested in taking photos inside St Paul’s Cathedral. Will you be arranging another special evening for photography of the interior? If so, can you please let me know. Thank you.
