Occasionally the Cathedral, or parts of it, may need to close or only offer restricted access for a service, special event or day to day maintenance. We try to minimise these periods as much as we can, as we know that people travel long distances to visit us. As soon as we know about a closure it will be posted below. Please remember to check for last minute changes prior to your visit as some events, such as funerals, are only arranged at short notice.
