"Medieval Stained Glass" Special Interest Tour
Saturday 5th August
10:00 - 11:30
Description:Wells Cathedral has one of the most substantial collections of Medieval stained glass in England. We offer three different stained glass special interest tours, this one focussing on our "Marvels of Medieval Glass". Come and admire the Cathedral’s 13th and 14th century glass. Specialist guides will explain how and why the glass was made, pointing out the intricacies of the design, identifying the figures and outlining their stories. Please bring binoculars if you can, as some of the images are small and high up. This tour is part of our programme of pre-bookable special interest tours for 2017 which offer an insight into our Cathedral embroideries, stained glass, carvings, gothic architecture and chained library and which are led by our highly trained and enthusiastic Cathedral Guides. Each tour lasts a full hour and a half. Places do need to be pre-booked and maximum tour numbers apply. £10 per person. And if you are interested in taking one of these tours but can't make this date, other dates and themes are available throughout the year. Check out our website for details or call us on 01749 671663.
