Tours

Cathedral Tours

 

We have a dedicated team of volunteer Guides and Welcomers who are available to answer any question during your visit. Please note that we cannot guarantee that a Guide will be available at all times, as this is dependent upon volunteer availability and/or visitor numbers (as they may already be engaged).  Our free visitor leaflet, available from the welcome desk, inlcudes a floorplan and highlights various points of interest to help you get the most from your visit.

During our busiest times we often run informal free guided tours at specific times.  Places are limited for these tours and we advise booking in advance. You can find our current tours on our What's On calendar. Use the search box to search for 'tours'.

Please note that at present we are unable to offer tours at height, including the triforium and bell tower. 

Group Tours

 

Bespoke tours for groups can be arranged in advance by contacting us by email (office@carlislecathedral.org.uk) or by telephone (01228 548151).

For an organised tour we do make a charge-per-head to cover administration and to ensure that your group have a dedicated Guide; these can be special interest tours tailored to your particular area of interest, or general in nature.  These pre-booked tours are exclusive for those who have booked and would be arranged discretely from any other activities. The current cost for an organised tour is £6 per head.
