Booking your visit

To ensure everyone’s safety, we've reduced the number of people we can welcome at one time. You'll need to book your visit in advance - tickets are currently released a week in advance. 

We depend on income from visitors to raise the £14,000 it costs daily to maintain this incredible building and open it to the public. 

All tickets are valid for repeat visits to the Cathedral for 12 months from the date of purchase.

In line with goverment regulations all bookings are restricted to 6 people or 2 households in total. Face coverings are required throughout the Cathedral and Cloisters, unless you are exempt.

Please ensure you are ready to use the NHS Test and Trace app to check in when you arrive - it is available to download from the Google Play store here and Apple store here.

Monday to Saturday: There are bookable entry slots every 30 minutes from 10:00 to 15:00.  You can enter up to 30 minutes after your time slot. The latest you will be able to enter the Cathedral is 15.30pm and all visitors will need to leave by 16:00.

We offer different ticket packages for varying group sizes - you may need a combination of tickets for your party.

All tickets qualify for a free annual visitor pass once purchased. This will enable you to return for free (in the same group) for a year.

When the purchase is complete, you will be sent one document which contains one ticket for each member of your group.

It will also contain your annual pass with your “Annual Pass Number” which you will need for booking further visits
