Guided Tours

The Cathedral Guides aim to enhance visitors' experience of the Cathedral by providing information on its history, architecture and ministry.

The Cathedral has a team of trained volunteer Guides who welcome visitors, lead formal tours and are available to provide information informally about the building, furnishings, worship and activities taking place.

*Please note: Occasionally services or special events mean that it is not possible to run our regular tours. If you are coming from a long distance or with a group it is best to check with us first to avoid disappointment.
