Recommended visiting times can be seen below although we suggest allowing at least one hour before closing time to make the most of your visit. As a living church we are open 365 days a year - we warmly invite you to join us for one of our services.
Magna Carta 1215 is on permanent display in the Chapter House with a new interactive exhibition celebrating its 800th anniversary year in 2015. Please note that after an initial trial of timed ticketing for this exhibition we are pleased to say that it is no longer necessary and so we have stopped it).
Opening times and access arrangements may vary at short notice depending on special services and concerts - especially around Easter and Christmas. There may also be days when access to some areas of the Cathedral is restricted. You can view information about future closures or restricted access here.
The Chapter House, Restaurant and Shop are all closed on Christmas day - see detailed information below the tables.
