It is over three months since we closed the doors to the Cathedral as a result of the Coronavirus outbreak, and in accordance with the latest guidance from the Government and the Church of England, we are delighted to be re-opening the building.

We are now fully open for anyone wishing to visit this beautiful building, In order to comply with social distancing guidelines we are asking people to book tickets in advance of their visit online as we are limiting the number of people who can access the building at any one time. There are several other safety measures in place. Cathedral staff, guides and volunteers will be on hand to ensure you have a enjoyable experience. Entrance is via the West Door (main entrance) only and open to visitors from 10am to 4pm, Monday to Saturday.

The Cathedral continues to offer public worship every Sunday for the 10.30am Eucharist. Due to current guidance, and to ensure the wellbeing of our participants and congregation, the Cathedral will only be open for worship on Sunday and therefore closed to visitors. If you would like to attend the Sunday service please click here for further information.

For now, we thank you for your patience and support and we look forward to welcoming you back into the Cathedral.
