Free Daily Guided Tours

Free Daily Guided Tours

On most days of the year (Monday-Saturday), regular, scheduled tours of the Cathedral are available with one of our highly trained guides.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the Coronavirus, all regular tours have been been suspended in Wells Cathedral until further notice. The Cathedral is, however, now open to all visitors and public worship has begun again.


These tours are free of charge, 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.

No booking is required. Simply gather by our ‘Tour’ sign in the nave before the tour is scheduled to begin.

If you are part of a large group, one of our group tours would be more suitable as our daily tours are intended for smaller groups. For more information about Group Visits, please click here.
