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 usually on display 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, the Chapter House will be closed and Magna Carta will not be on public display between 5 January - 6 March 2014 - during this time a facsimile of Magna Carta will be on display in the Morning Chapel. We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused.
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.
