Guided Tours

Guided ToursA personal experience

Our 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. 

All our guides wear a red sash - look out for them by the entrance or on your way around the Cathedral.

The Guides can offer full or partial guided tours which they will tailor to suit your interests and the time you have available. Guides have knowledge on a wide range of subjects as they undergo 15 weeks of intensive training.

For a full tour ot the Cathedral, allow just under an hour. It's a good idea to arrive just over hour before the Guides go off duty to ensure sufficient time.

Please note that at the moment tours are in English only.
