Experience a unique and inspiring school trip at Gloucester Cathedral

Gloucester Cathedral is an exciting and stimulating place to visit for students of all ages. Our simple aim is to bring learning to life, providing fun and informative experiences for all of the learners who walk through our doors.

Our workshops and resources are rooted in both the curriculum and the Cathedral’s heritage as a centre of worship, culture and community. All workshops include all-day entry to the Cathedral, an expert led workshop, and related resources.

All workshops run 10-12 or 12:30-2:30. They can be extended to a full day by booking a Mosque-Cathedral Day (9:30-2:30) or through booking two slots (10-2:30) - these can be the same workshop or two separate ones.
