Visitor Tickets and Tours
We recommend booking visitor tickets in advance here, although tickets can be purchased on arrival at the Cathedral.
Book online, in advance of your visit, and save £1 on each adult entry ticket (until 31 December)
We also offer the option to include a visit to The Stained Glass Museum, housed upstairs in the Cathedral.
Pre-booking is particularly advised if you want to join any of our tours as places are limited. These tours include Octagon Tower Tours, West Tower Tours, Ground Floor Tours and Monastic Tours
