Tower Tour

April 20 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Take a trip to the top of our Tower!

On this hour long tour, you’ll climb the Cathedral’s 216 steps to the top of the Tower, via various viewing galleries to admire breath-taking views of the Cathedral’s interior.

Along the way, you will catch inspiring views of the Cathedral from an elevated position (perfect photo opportunities!), discover lots about the history of our building and see a view of almost the full length of the Cathedral.

Once at the top (125 feet high), take in the view encompassing of one city, two countries and five counties! You will also visit the former Bell Ringing Chamber, several other secret behind-the-scenes areas, and learn fascinating facts along the way.

It’s definitely not to be missed.

Tours generally operate at 11am Monday to Thursday, at 11am and 3pm on Friday, and 11am, 1pm and 3pm on Saturday.

Occasionally tours may be cancelled due to operational requirements of the Cathedral. Booking in advance is recommended.

Please note: the tour requires climbing steep stairs. The tour may not suitable for those with breathing difficulties, a heart condition, mobility issues or who are currently pregnant. Children must be over six years of age, and able to climb the stairs unaided.
