St Paul's Cathedral queue times

There is a queue in operation at the entrance to St Paul's Cathedral. Since this is one of the UK's top tourist attractions, you may be expecting a long delay. In fact the line at St Paul's is normally at most 20 minutes. Since reopening in 2021, there has been minimal queuing, as I confirmed by walking there after lunch today. I discovered very short queues, despite today being in a school holiday week when you would expect more visitors. There is a bag search outside followed by ticket purchase inside.
