Guided Tours

Guided ToursA personal experience

All of our Cathedral guides undergo 15 weeks of intensive training to ensure that the tours they give are a wonderful experience for our visitors.

The Guides can offer full or partial guided tours which they will tailor to suit your interests and the time you have available.  If you would like a full tour of the Cathedral it’s a good idea to arrive at least 45 minutes before the Guides go off duty, in order to allow enough time.  Please note that at the moment tours are in English only.

The Cathedral Guides can tell you about the fascinating world of the monks that used to live here, lead you on an architectural tour or show you where Harry Potter was filmed! Just ask.
