Take a trip to the top of our Tower

Visit Chester Cathedral and embark upon our award winning tower tour – Cathedral at Height; one of the best things to do in Chester!

We’re delighted that our Cathedral at Height Tours are finally able to return.

On this hour long tour, you’ll climb right to the top of our central tower and see one city, two countries and five counties.  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 a view of almost the full length of the Cathedral.  It’s definitely not to be missed.

Tours take place on Fridays and Saturdays.

Key facts & figures
