St Paul’s Cathedral is one of London’s most popular tourist attractions - unique for being the creation of just one man, Sir Christopher Wren who gave the first Anglican Cathedral a feature from Catholic Rome - a dome.
This one-of-a-kind app is the perfect companion to experiencing the Cathedral and its surroundings without the need for books, maps or in-house audio guide. Use it at home, on a plane, outside and inside St Paul’s - the encounter begins well before the entrance doorway and continues long after leaving.
To make the most of a visit there are ideas to consider before setting off, along with visitor information, travel planner and useful links. Afterwards there are suggestions for other things to see and do in the area ranging from more of the same to the completely different. Points of interest and local facilities are marked on an interactive offline area map that includes introduction, contact details and weblinks. When online they appear in a directory of the 100 nearest points of interest, listed by proximity and plotted on Google Maps.
Don’t forget your headphones because there’s an hour of atmospheric audio guide to use how you want to. Enjoy before you go, listen again in the Cathedral and keep as a lasting memento. With pristine sound quality and filled with high quality music, cinematic sound design and dramatic reconstructions it’s a captivating way to become immersed in the many fascinating stories connected with the Cathedral.
