Street Art, Photography And More: St Paul's Loosens Up This Summer
One of the UK's most famous street painters, Inkie, will be working inside St Paul's this weekend

If you're on the hunt for street artists in London, you wouldn't usually think of popping into St Paul's Cathedral.

But this summer, St Paul's is loosening up, relaxing some of the rules and even hosting three world-class graffiti artists. On Friday and Saturday this week, Inkie, CBloxx, and Robert Jeffs, more used to working with the likes of Banksy and Massive Attack's 3D, will take time to explore the subjects of Mary, St Paul's Watch and wisdom with their spray cans.

It's all part of an exciting summer programme at the cathedral. Special art-themed family days on 6, 12 and 14 August will give families the chance to take part in tours of the modern art or the mosaics in the famous landmark. Alternatively, visit on 20, 24 or 28 August, and you can explore some of the hidden corners of the church: the Crypt, the Triforium or the organ.

Special photography days on 3 and 17 August give visitors the rare chance to take pictures inside Wren's great masterpiece.

And, for the summer only, if you complete all 528 steps to the top of St Paul's Golden Gallery (which, let's face it, is the best bit), there'll be a special I DID THE DOME badge waiting for you at the top.
