Tours

Daily Taster tours

FREE taster tours lasting approximately 30 minutes are available most days between 10.30am and 3.30pm Monday to Saturday. Although there is no charge for these tours we welcome donations (£3 per person).

There is no need to book, just ask one of our friendly and welcoming volunteers on arrival for more information

 

Group bookings

Entry to the Cathedral is free for both individuals and groups of visitors – although we welcome donations (£3 per person).

For a private tour with a Cathedral Guide, a charge to the Cathedral of at least £6 (or £4 concession) per member of the group is politely requested in order to secure the booking. Cathedral Guided tours last approximately 1 hour.

If you wish to self-guide (thus providing your own tour leader / guide e.g. a Blue Badge Guide), a charge to the Cathedral of at least £3 per member of the group is politely requested in order to secure the booking.

All tour groups (guided or self-guided) must be pre-booked into the Cathedral diary in order to avoid disappointment. As there are huge demands on the Cathedral space – for large visiting groups (8 people or more) please email diary@manchestercathedral.org

 

School and College bookings

Educational visits can be arranged to correspond with curricular or special areas of interest - please ring the Education Officer, Pam Elliott to discuss on 0161 817 4814.
