12 The Close
For over 900 years the awesome beauty of this Norman building has reached out and touched people, speaking to them of God’s glory and his love for each one of them. The Cathedral’s architecture is justly famous, its history fascinating and its collection of art and objects outstanding. The Cathedral deserves its five star rating as a tourist attraction, but this is no museum.
The Cathedral is open from:
Suggested donation adults:£5, conc:£4, family: £12.

Creative Arts Programmes for KS1,2 and 3
A number of new cross curricular programmes involving art and craft, music, dance and drama, ending with a plenary of discussion, reflection and stillness. The Cathedral's images, architecture and art provide ideal 'springboards' to learn about our world, spirituality and self expression. Our live interpretation programmes explore the medieval lives of holy people who lived in and around the Cathedral.
