Noah's Ark Family Trail

Saturday 23 July - Saturday 3 September

This summer, we're inviting you to come and take part in our 'Noah's Ark' family trail! The trail will guide you around this beautiful medieval building, and along the way, you'll discover the many animals who are hidden in the stained glass windows, architecture and stone masonry. You'll learn some fun facts about them too, spanning from how much water horses drink a day through to how much weight an eagle can carry.

Collect a trail sheet from the Welcome Desk, and when you're finished, pick up your sticker from the Gift Shop. Good luck!

This trail is suitable for all the family, and it's free to take part in with no advance booking required. However, donations to the Cathedral are gratefully received.

The trail is usually available 10am-5pm Monday-Friday, 10am-4pm Saturday and 10am-2.30pm/4pm-5pm on Sundays. Sometimes our opening hours change due to special events and services, so please check the daily calendar before you visit.

  • Arriving by Public Transport

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