Saturday 14th March 2020

Cathedral Open Day
Tickets - £5 tower tour from Guildford Cathedral Box Office 01483 547870 or Guildford Cathedral Online Box Office

Explore the stunning Cathedral with three different tours. 

At 11am come and join one of our passionate guides for a tour of the main body of the Cathedral. You will see the highlights of the building as well as some hidden gems and benefit from the insight and passion of one of our knowledgeable guides. The tour will last around an hour. 

At 12.30 we will also be opening up the crypt for a tour of the oldest part of the building. Have an interest in architecture? Want to see behind the scenes workings of the Cathedral? Book on to this tour. Please note there are steps down to the tour, and the tunnel is an enclosed space. 

From the depths to the heights, maybe you’d prefer to experience the fresh air and stunning view from the top of the tower. At 2pm climb the 249 steps, passing through the bell-ringing chamber on the way, and look out over the Surrey hills. There are some restrictions on this tour. 

In between tours, why not grab a coffee and a slice of cake from Season’s Cafe or browse our gift shop? There is also the opportunity to explore the Cathedral on your own at your own speed.

There are a limited number of places available on each tour so booking is advised. You need to book a ticket for each tour you would like to attend. The tower tours are £5 per person. Please advise us when booking of any mobility difficulties.
