An educational trip to Wells Cathedral will inform and inspire. Enhance your pupils understanding of special places, inspirational buildings, historical events and Christian theology by bringing your pupils to Wells Cathedral.

New Lower Rates for UK School Groups!

We are committed to making a Cathedral visit accessible to all UK school groups, and are delighted to introduce two simple packages for parties booking in advance:

Option 1:

A shorter visit of around an hour at £1.80 per pupil. This can include a guided tour at no extra cost, subject to guide availability. We need at least two weeks’ notice.

Option 2:

A programme with tour and activities at £3.90 per pupil. Day programmes involve staff and other spaces, for example, a guided tour on a theme of your choice, a related activity session led by the Cathedral Education Officer and use of the private lunch room, toilets and bag storage facilities.

Both options offer free places for accompanying staff (supervision 1:10 please). Prices are inclusive of VAT, payable through invoice.

Please Note: unbooked groups will be asked on the day for our suggestion donation i.e. adults £6, children £3.

Please follow the links in the left menu bar to decide what type of visit would suit your school and then get in touch by email or phone 01749 674483 ext 280.

Year 7 students from Taunton Academy recently visited the Cathedral and one of the activities undertaken whilst here was a photo competition. The winning photo was taken by Faith Bartlett (see below) and one student, Jay Biddle, also produced a mini film which is a wonderfully evocative representation of his visit to us.
