Closures

Please note that the East End of the Cathedral starts to close from 4pm onwards. The Quire closes at 4pm* in readiness for Evensong (*3.45pm when we have a visiting Choir) the remainder of the East End closes at 4.30pm and the Chapter House closes at 4.55pm.

During summer opening times (April – September) all will re-open when Evensong has ended, c. 6.15pm.

Please also note that the Cathedral operates a Quiet Hour from 12.00pm-1.00pm from April to October. This restores the peace and tranquility of this holy place and serves as a reminder of its primary purpose as a place of worship. Guided tours do not take place during Quiet Hour.
