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. Please remember to check for last minute changes prior to your visit as some events, such as funerals, are only arranged at short notice.

Please note that between 1 - 2 February 2016 our Magna Carta will not be available to view while it undergoes standard conservation work. A facsimile will be displayed in its place during this time.
