Closures and Restrictions

Restricted Access

The Cathedral Nave without seating

Occasionally the Cathedral, or parts of it, may also need to close or only offer restricted access for a service, special event, filming or general maintenance.

We try to minimise these periods as much as we can, as we know that people may travel long distances to visit us.  As soon as we know about a closure it will be posted below.   Please remember to check this page for any last minute changes prior to your visit as some events may have to be arranged at short notice.
