This year, for the first time, every Church of England cathedral will open its doors for at least one very special evening when everyone is invited to discover these astonishing buildings for free.

Lose yourself in the beauty of the Cathedral as it moves from daylight to dusk at this reflective evening. See our stunning architecture and medieval wall paintings brought to life and hear from characters from the Medieval Abbey's past. Join us to explore places you may never have seen before or simply take time to 'just be' in these extraordinary spaces of peace and tranquility.

Whether you've never set foot in a cathedral before, or are more familiar, or just want to explore somewhere new, come and visit us and prepare to be amazed.

Abbot's Kitchen Special

On the night, Abbot's Kitchen will be offering a glass of Pimms and a bowl of strawberries and cream for £6 or two for 10. Available to drink in or takeaway to enjoy on the Abbey Orchard.

Cathedrals at Night is a project sponsored and supported by the Association of English Cathedrals for 2020 Year of Cathedrals, Year of Pilgrimage.
