About YHA London St Paul's

Bolt-ons available here

Stone's throw from St Paul's Cathedral

Where better for educational visits and groups to explore London from than a former school? This extraordinary building has an unbeatable location to exploring famous attractions – it’s literally seconds from St Paul’s Cathedral. As well as charming period features (look out for the vintage graffiti in our meeting room) we boast modern essentials like free Wi-Fi and internet access.

Dine like the choirboys of our past with group catering options for breakfast, lunch and dinner. YHA London St Paul’s is a historic setting worth exploring and we’re fully licensed until midnight. Relax in our TV lounge, browse through our donated books, or book one of our inspiring school workshops.

As well as the iconic cathedral next-door, we’re perfect for visiting the famous London sights. Tower Bridge, the London Dungeon, London Zoo and the London Eye are all within easy reach and we offer discounts on them too. Whether you’re a group of theatre lovers enjoying the West End or a school trip discovering the capital, our unforgettable building can’t get much closer to the action. Explore more of London with our bolt-ons - tie in a West End visit with a theatre workshop or have a unique adventure on the streets of London with our City Exploration bolt-ons.
