There is also no effort involved as a lift takes you all the way. It's not free but the cost is worth it - £6 / £3 for concessions. You are likely to be the only people up there and can stay as long as you wish (within the opening times) - you just press a button and a member of staff brings the lift to collect you.
If you are interested in hearing about the fascinating history of the Cathedral and its immediate surroundings, myself and 3 other City of Westminster Guides will be leading a series of lunchtime walks every Tuesday in May.
Walks start this coming Tuesday 5th May at 1.10pm from the piazza outside the Cathedral on Victoria Street. Reserve your place and pay on the day. More details can be found here. I will be involved in the walks in the second half of the month.
