As a living church we are open 365 days a year - we warmly invite you to join us for one of our services.
Opening times can be seen below although we recommend you arrive at least one hour before our closing time to enjoy the most of your visit here.
Opening times 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.
If you wish to see Magna Carta 1215 it is located in the Chapter House - we have exciting plans to deliver a new interactive exhibition, including a re-presentation of the Magna Carta itself for its 800th anniversary year in 2015. As a result, Magna Carta will not be on display between 5 January - 6 March - during this time a facsimile of Magna Carta with interpretation will be on display in the Morning Chapel. We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused.
The Chapter House, Restaurant and Shop are all closed on Christmas day - see detailed information below the tables.
