Guided Tours

Please note guided tours are suspended during the coronavirus pandemic.



Our regular open tours take place on Saturdays at 11.30 am and 1.30 pm and following the Lunchtime Recital on Tuesdays during term time.  However - the pattern can change because of special service and other events, so please check the 'What's On' section to see what is happening on a specific date, or ring the Cathedral office on 01179264879 before your visit to avoid disappointment. Open tours are free, but we have a suggested donation of £5 per adult, which is used for the maintenance and upkeep of the Cathedral. 

During August there are additional guides on duty to answer questions - click here for more information about dates and times. 

We can arrange private tours for groups with special interests. 

We have leaflet guides of the Cathedral in a number of different languages. Download them here.

You can also discover Bristol at your own pace with Visit Bristol's audio tours, of which the Bristol Heritage Trail and Bristol Churches Trail, feature the Cathedral.

Explore Bristol's relationship with the Romantic movement with two tours around the city, one of which features the memorial to Robert Southey in our North Quire Aisle.
