__________

When the Cathedral is open, some areas may occasionally have restricted access due to 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. Please remember to check this page for any last minute changes prior to your visit as some events may be arranged at short notice. Wells Cathedral is a working church and the dates and information mentioned on this page may not be exhaustive so please check the What’s On page for services and events before planning your trip or call the Cathedral offices on 01749 674 483.

When the Cathedral is open and a service is taking place, all are welcome to sit as part of the congregation. For the majority of the large services and concerts there will be rehearsals which you may sit and enjoy. You may experience virgers moving equipment into place and although disruption is kept to a minimum, it is hoped you will understand the need to be ready!
