Please see our website for details of any COVID-19 safety measures in place at the Cathedral.
Tickets booked for Monday, Friday or Saturday visits, and daily during school holidays, include access to the Stone Gallery and the Golden Gallery in the Dome. Entry timeslots named 'Sightseeing Entry - Dome closed today' fall on dates when the Dome is not open. Please note that entrance to the Golden Gallery is subject to availability due to continued distancing measures and there may be time restrictions in place. The Whispering Gallery remains closed to the public until further notice.
Our Annual Passes:
• allow you to visit the Cathedral during sightseeing opening hours as many time as you like over one year: You’ll still choose a visit date here, which will be the start of your 12-month access whether you use your Pass then or not
• are classified as a donation: We ask UK taxpayers to consider applying Gift Aid so we can benefit from an extra 25 pence for every £1 you donate
• only allow you, and any family members living with you whom you book Annual Passes for, to enter the Cathedral: you won’t be able to bring people not from your family household (you do not have to visit with family household members you have booked Annual Passes for)
• are non-transferable: proof of address may be requested when revisiting.
Please do not book Annual Passes for people not from your family household. They should book their own Annual Passes.
Some special events at the Cathedral may also allow free access for Annual Pass holders but please check each event for clarification.
You can currently select a visit date up to one month in the future. E-tickets are emailed to you to print or to show on a mobile device when you visit.

Last admission is usually at 4.00pm and sightseeing usually ends at 4.30pm. The average visit length is two hours.
Please note that complimentary entry can be granted to a disabled visitor and an accompanying carer or necessary companion, as well as for NHS staff. These tickets can be requested on arrival or can be pre-booked in the Admission Tickets section.
