I’ve been incredibly lucky the past couple of years to work for an amazing company that I absolutely love.
A massive part of why I love it so much is that I get to work with an amazing range of charities, nonprofits and foundations. Over the past couple of years we’ve been lucky enough to work with one of the most iconic landmarks of the London skyline – St. Paul’s Cathedral.
A couple of weeks ago I went along to help out with one of their Summer Lates. There’s nothing quite like the dome, but before I started working with them I hadn’t actually ever made it inside. As a Londoner, you don’t really ever do tours of your own town, and it’s such a missed opportunity.
The lates are a great way of exploring this iconic cathedral – it’s a bit quieter, and they actively encourage photography during this time – something which isn’t usually allowed.
You can grab a touchscreen guide, and there are lots of things for kids to do as well. The highlight for me is the Crypt Cafe, which stays open for the duration of the lates, which is great if you fancy a cappuccino (but they also have beer, too!)
There are only a few lates left until the summer ends, so hop to it! They’re on from 6.30 – 9pm (last entry at 8.15) and adult tickets are a tenner. The dome galleries aren’t open, but the crypt and the cathedral floor are there to be explored.
