Westminster Cathedral is a formidable building that houses within it a great deal of historical facts and artefacts.

This is a unique find among european cathedrals. We stumbled upon it while searching for a Saturday vigil mass and was pleasantly surprised. It was built in the late 1800s and instead of lavishly decorating all at once, they are doing it gradually as funds...More

Loved this visit, such history and majesty. Just allow time to get in, explore and plan ahead ! The precinct around is great, very easy public transport and food options around. Ah what a cool place !! Epic.

Step into another world; one of peace and serenity. Look high and low and marvel at the beauty surrounding you. If you plan in advance, you can even attend Mass.

Impressive cathedral close to Victoria Station. Large and clean with quiet areas for prayer and reflexion. We arrived too late for Sunday mass but were welcomed by staff. We did not go up into the tower, but intend to next time.

Lovely experience in visiting this cathedral, always wanted to visit and finally did. The only disappointment is queuing for long time to enter, even though I had the London Pass card, but worth the waiting. Have a walk all around and admire this lovely building.

This is the first time I have gone to the Cathedral for Mass. Usually, I go to church on Sundays in Knightsbridge. Of course, as far as historical places go, Westminster Abbey is much older and well known. We were fortunate to attend formal chorale...More

It’s free to get in here although a donation is preferred. If you go during the work week it’s pretty easy to get in with no lines. Architectural it’s a very interesting building with a Byzantine style

Took my 11 year old grandson for the day. He loved it. The pandas are gorgeous. Lots of food and drink outlets and reasonably priced. Toilets were clean. The site is hilly so be prepared to climb steep slopes.

We had not visited the Cathedral on prior visits to London, like many, we opted for Westminister Abbey instead. However, on this trip, our mini tour stopped at the Cathedral and highly recommended the tower view. We were pleasantly surpirsed by the history and the...More

If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a
grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham
Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just
up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are

My best advice is just google Westminster Cathedral and you will see all the times for Mass. Weekdays differ from Weekends. And also it could depend on when you are traveling.

no,there are no organised tours as such as it is more an active place of worship but I am sure that a guided tour could be arranged if you contacted the cathedral in advance
