Tower Tours

Join our Tower Tour Guides on an exciting journey spiralling up the 249 steps to the top of Guildford Cathedral. Pass through our Ringing Chamber and Bell Chamber containing the only ring of 12 bells in the Diocese. Enjoy the stunning 360° views across Guildford and towards London before descending and visiting our Cafe/Restaurant for a well-deserved piece of cake!

The selected dates between April - September at 2.00pm and are limited to 15 people per tour. As this is a working Cathedral, there are occasions when tours will not be available (if a service or event is being held); details of cancellations will be notified to any pre-booked ticket holders.
