Plan Your Visit

Nave Almost 1000 years of history to discover...

There is plenty to see and do when you visit and we suggest you allow between 1.5 - 3 hours.

If you are pressed for time, you can see most of the highlights in 45 minutes using one of our Walk Round Guides (available from the Gift Shop for £2.00).

We warmly invite you to join one of our services.

We recommend that you ask one of our knowledgeable Cathedral guides to give you a guided tour but if you would prefer to explore by yourself there are printed guides available from the Gift Shop for just £2.

We also recommend that you check the Cathedral calendar before visiting as from time to time there may be imited access around the building due to services and events.

If you intend to visit as a group of seven or more, please make a group booking via our Visits Officer who will be pleased to discuss your requirements:

Tel: 01452 508210

Please read our Bookings policy for our full terms and conditions.

Gloucester Cathedral welcomes our four legged friends to enjoy the newly landscaped precincts. At this time we can only allow assistance dogs inside the Cathedral itself. For more information please see our Dogs in the Cathedral Policy
