Crypt Tours

CryptWhat lies beneath...

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. 

Crypt tours take place daily at 11.45am, 12.45pm, 1.45pm, and 2.45pm (except Sundays when tours are available at 12.30pm and 1.30pm). 

A Cathedral Guide will collect you from outside the entrance to the Gift Shop at the times specified.
Tours last around 20 minutes. 

Crypt tours are priced at £3 for adults, 50p for children aged 4-16 and under 4s are free. 

Tickets can be purchased in the Gift Shop in advance of the tour start times.

Occasionally tours may be cancelled at the last minute due to health and safety reasons. If you are visiting specifically for a Crypt Tour, we recommend that you contact the Cathedral Office (01452 528095) in advance to check before you travel.
