West Tower Tours


West Tower tours are currently suspended while we wait to see if our resident Peregrines are nesting this year.

Climb the 288 steps to the top of the West Tower for stunning views over the city and the surrounding fens.

The tour takes up to 1 hour and requires a certain level of fitness and mobility.

Days and Times: Saturdays, various times.

Please Note: For safety reasons Tower Tours may need to be suspended in extreme weather such as freezing ice or heavy rain. Full refunds will be given plus the option to rebook.

Tickets: £10 for adults (in addition to your visitor ticket). We cannot accept children under 10 on this tour.

Please note: if you usually have Free Cathedral Entry please contact us at Box Office prior to your visit to pay for your tour, as it is not possible to book free visitor tickets on-line.

We advise booking in advance on-line prior to your visit, and all participants must have read the Terms and Conditions. This tour may not be suitable for everyone. There is a maximum of 10 places on each tour.

Please meet your guide near the font in the South West Transept of the Cathedral, 10 minutes before your tour is due to start, as the tour starts promptly.

The Tom's Midnight Garden book featuring the West Tower and a Handmade Hanging Ornament are available from our Online Shop
