Family Visits

Many families visit the Cathedral every year, and we want to make sure that it’s a great experience for everyone. When you arrive, younger children can have an Explorer Bag for a £5 refundable deposit and children aged 8-12 can follow our special Cathedral Trail.


We also have a Ghost Knight trail, based on the popular children's book by Cornelia Funke. It’s also worth checking our events calendar before your visit for any craft sessions and fun activities which we run throughout the year.


We understand that your dog is an important part of your family, so we welcome well behaved dogs on leads inside the Cathedral and cloisters and make sure there is always water available for them near the entrance to the Refectory Restaurant. Please note, only guide and assistance dogs are allowed inside the Refectory.
