Guided Tours are currently free of charge

To ensure that our Guided Tours are safe and enjoyable we are running some trials.  If you would be happy to provide us with some feedback about your experience, please ask at the Welcome Desk about joining one of these free Guided Tours during your visit.

Please note that those taking part in a trial tour will be required to wear a face covering throughout it (unless exempt).

Descend the steps from the South Transept to discover the hidden subterranean level of the Cathedral. This is where you’ll find remains of the very earliest parts of the building.
