Hourly Guided Tours

Hourly Guided Tours


These tours are included in your entry donation, last approximately one hour and are designed to provide a general overview of the highlights which make Wells unique among English Cathedrals. They can add significantly to your enjoyment and appreciation of the Cathedral.

The hourly ground floor tours generally operate Monday to Saturday, on the hour from 11.00 a.m. to 3.00 p.m. No booking is required. Simply gather by our ‘Tour’ sign in the nave before the tour is scheduled to begin.

The cathedral often has services, events and functions that can prevent tours, and restrict access to parts of the cathedral. If you would like more information about what tours are operating please email visits@wellscathedral.org.uk or call Visitor Services on 01749 671663

If you are a group of 10 or more, you are asked to pre-book one of our more suitable group tours. For more information about Group Visits, please click here.
