Free Daily Guided Tours

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.

***Visitor Information***

There will be no guided tours on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Otherwise, our free guided tours will be available as usual throughout the Christmas and New Year period. 

Free guided tours are available daily for visitors at the following times:

11.30 Monday to Saturday

14.30 Sunday to Friday

14.00 Saturday

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

Free Highlights Tour*

If your time is limited, why not come on one of our whistle-stop tours and explore the highlights of this great building.
