The Cathedral and Abbey Church has been welcoming pilgrims and visitors alike since the 11th century. We hope this web site helps you to discover and enjoy the treasures of this wonderful building.
Open 08.30 - 17.45
The Cathedral is open all year round and entry is free. We also run free daily tours so you can find out more about the Cathedral from our expert team of Guides.
The Cathedral is normally open every day, but occasionally services or special events mean that access for visitors has to be restricted. If you are coming from a long distance or with a group it is best to check with us first in order to avoid disappointment.
Large groups of visitors, including school children and students, should book ahead (there is a nominal charge).
