A self-guided tour, following in expert footsteps.

Guide’s Tour Web App

A Guide’s Tour conducts you round the locations that you’d see on a guided tour, highlighting the key things to look out for. For convenience, this self-guided tour follows the recommended route introduced at the start of the Covid-19 outbreak. Visitors are now free to visit any area that is open to the public, but please note that access to any given part of the cathedral may not be possible at the time of your visit.

A Guide’s Tour is a new generation of progressive web app (PWA) that can be installed on your mobile phone or tablet in advance of your visit. Depending on your mobile network, 4/5G reception may be patchy in parts of the Cathedral and there is, as yet, no public Wi-Fi provision.
