Spirit and Endeavour Virtual Art Tour
Welcome to the interactive virtual art tour of our contemporary art exhibition Celebrating 800 years of Spirit and Endeavour.
This remarkable show brings together work from some of the most important and influential contemporary artists of the 20th and 21st century, including Antony Gormley, Shirazeh Houshiary, Henry Moore, Grayson Perry, Conrad Shawcross, Stanza and Mark Wallinger. Read more about the exhibition here.
We wish we could invite you to view the works in person but that is not possible at this time. Instead we hope you will enjoy discovering them within the Cathedral and close from the comfort of your home. Please note that this tour is best viewed using a computer or laptop.
The simplest way to navigate through the tour is to do so using the thumbnail images displayed at the bottom of the screen - you may find it helpful to zoom in or out by holding down your 'Ctrl' key and using your + and - keys if you have a keypad.
Click below to launch the tour - make sure you click on the first thumbnail for the introduction video!
This page will remain open should you need to access these instructions.

Speaking about the exhibition Jacquiline Creswell, Visual Arts Adviser and curator said: “The exhibition is inspired by the ordinary people who came together in faith and resolve to achieve something extraordinary, and the exhibition seeks to articulate the potential that humankind has consistently shown over eight centuries. Collectively the works explore the human condition in different ways, seeking to understand what it is about people and faith that can inspire such vision and creativity.”
You can view the exhibition catalogue here.
We hope you enjoy the tour.
Would you consider making a donation to help sustain the Cathedral at this time? Like many other organisations, we are facing huge financial challenges in the coming months and we would be very grateful for your help.
