Entry Donations

While admission to the Cathedral is free, donations are very welcome.

English Cathedrals receive no regular funding from the Government or the Church of England towards maintenance, restoration and development work.

Here at Wells that means we have to raise £4,500 per day which we must do through our own endeavours and with the help of our visitors, congregation and supporters.

To help us with this the suggested guideline for individual visitors is as follows:

Adults £6.00
Senior Citizens £4.00
Students and children £3.00
Family £15.00

If you are a UK taxpayer please also consider Gift Aid. This scheme enables the Cathedral to claim a tax refund of an extra 25p for every £1 you give. Information for Groups and Travel Trade bookings is here.

Wells Cathedral Annual Pass

Our Annual Pass is for anyone who wishes to make a donation to the Cathedral while enjoying fast-track access for 12 months via the Cathedral’s Donation Desk. More details here.

Everyone is welcome to visit the Cathedral and to worship here irrespective of their ability to leave a donation.
