Group Visits

Plan the perfect visit for your group

Explore this beautiful building and over 1,000 years of captivating history with your group either under your own steam or accompanied by one of our expert guides. We offer a range of fascinating tours to suit all interests.

Guided tours are only available in English, but groups are welcome to bring along their own interpreter if required. Please let us know at the time of booking if you intend to bring an interpreter.

The Cathedral diary is busy with regular services and events, so it is essential that all group bookings are arranged in advance to avoid disappointment. We ask for at least 14 days notice where possible.

    • Parking

      We are sorry that due to limited space, parking in the Cathedral Close is restricted to pass holders only.

      There are eight disabled parking spaces which are for use by Blue Badge holders on a first come first served basis.

      However, there are several public car parks within easy walking distance of the Cathedral.

    • Arriving by Public Transport

      The Cathedral is located in Gloucester Town Centre, so the best way to get here is by public transport.

      We are a 10-15 minute walk from both the train and bus stations. You can also use Gloucester’s Park and Ride.
