Free Daily Scheduled Tours

Taking a tour!

On most days of the year (Monday to Saturday), regular, scheduled tours of the Cathedral are available with one of our highly trained guides. They are free of charge, last approximately one hour and are designed to provide a general overview of the highlights which make Wells unique among English Cathedrals. They can add significantly to your enjoyment and appreciation of the Cathedral.

No need to book; simply gather by our ‘Tour’ sign in the nave before the tour is scheduled to begin.

And remember that if you visit us on a Wednesday or a Saturday morning between April to October we run FREE weekly stained glass and embroidery walks which showcase the Cathedral’s unique stained glass and beautiful embroideries. More details here.

Entry to the Cathedral is by donation.
