Daily Guided Tours

The Cathedral Guides 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.

Guided Tours*

Guided tours are available daily at the following times:

11.30 Monday to Saturday

13.05 Daily Highlights Tour 

14.30 Sunday to Friday

14.00 Saturday

These tours provide an introduction to the history of the building, point out the main items of interest and explain the Cathedral's ministry both past and present. They start at the west door and typically take about an hour.

Places are limited. Any donations for tours are greatly appreciated and go towards the upkeep of this historic building. 

If you are visiting as a Group, please get in touch so we can discuss your requirements. Group visits must be pre-booked - you can find out more here.

*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. On these occasions our guides will still be around to help you make the most of your visit. For information, please call 01727 890200. 

Our fully trained Cathedral Guides are the only guides permitted to conduct tours within the Cathedral.
