Cathedral at Height

Unfortunately, due to current government guidance with regards to social distancing, we are unable to operate our Cathedral at Height tours. To remain up-to-date with news and events from the Cathedral – including when the Cathedral at Height tours resume – sign-up to our regular newsletter, here.

Our multi-award winning tower tour is one of the best things to do in Chester!
You’ll climb right to the top of our central tower and see one city, two countries and five counties.

There are two versions of the tour for you to choose from

  • The 1 hour tour you get you the full Monty – views from the top, loads of history and the best bits inside, including a view of almost the full length of the cathedral.
  • The half-hour tour will give you the same views from the top, combined with a potted history and high points inside


Key facts & figures
