Closures and Restrictions

From time to time, areas of the Cathedral may be closed for services, special events, filming, or maintenance. We try to minimise these periods as much as we can, especially when the Cathedral is open during the daytime.


Please check this page for any last minute changes prior to your visit as some events may be arranged at short notice.

Tuesday 6 September 2022

The Millfield School Start of Year Service will take place in The Nave this morning beginning at 10.30am.

The Quire and East End will be closed from 9.30am
and The Cathedral from 10.00am until 12.00noon approximately.

The Shop and Café will remain open.




Wells Cathedral is a working church and the information detailed above may not be exhaustive. Please check the What’s On page for services and events before planning your trip or call the Cathedral offices on 01749 674 483.

All are welcome to take a seat in the congregation for services at the Cathedral. In most cases, large choral services and events will be preceded by a rehearsal in situ, and visitors are welcome to sit and enjoy these. We simply ask that noise is kept to a minimum for the duration of the rehearsal, notwithstanding any disruption from the movement of staging/equipment.
