Description

With its striking dome, Sir Christopher Wren’s St. Paul’s Cathedral stands out as an architectural masterpiece. Its interior is equally awe-inspiring, from the Whispering Gallery’s distinctive acoustics to the Golden Galleries that teeter at the top of the dome. The crypt houses famous Britons such as Lord Admiral Nelson, the Duke of Wellington and Sir Wren himself.

Beat the queues at Sir Wren’s masterpiece and enjoy more time inside St. Paul’s with two fast track, queue jump admission tickets. Once inside, either join an expertly guided, complimentary tour or explore the Cathedral at your own pace with a multimedia guide and gain a new appreciation for the importance of St. Paul’s to London’s history.

Following a tour of St. Paul’s, head to another of the capital’s iconic structures; Somerset House. Nestled inside this architecturally stunning, world-class arts complex is Spring. Head chef Skye Gyngell opened Spring after cooking at Michelin-starred Petersham Nurseries Café, and his seasonal British cuisine is beautifully complimented by sleek leather chairs and elegant, pastel interiors, offering a tranquil backdrop to enjoy a delicate three-course lunch.

Gyngell’s menu guides diners through the lighter side of contemporary British cuisine with an Italian influence. Expect dishes such as crunchy bruschetta topped with creamy crème fraiche and doused with salty cod roe, to a rich spice-rubbed quail with sweet potatoes.

Sample Menu

  • Cod’s roe with crème fraîche and bruschetta
  • Spiced rubbed quail with sweet potato and salmoriglio
  • Fern Verrow apple, vanilla and lemon tart
