Christmas Rooftop Tours

20th Nov 2017 2.15pm - 16th Dec 2017 3.45pm Event Type: Tour

Enjoy an exhilarating rooftop tour of Winchester Cathedral with one of our experienced guides. Discover fascinating facts about the Cathedral and its architecture and admire splendid views of the Christmas Market and Ice Rink from the Cathedral roof.

You will also have the opportunity to walk across the top of the stone vaulted ceiling above the Nave and marvel at the 900 year-old roof beams before visiting the Cathedral’s impressive bell ringing chamber, at the heart of the Cathedral Tower. Get up close to the 16 magnificent bells which can be heard across Winchester before returning to the Cathedral via the roof - the perfect photo opportunity!

Please note, the top of the Tower is currently being refurbished to meet health and safety requirements. We are working to resolve this issue as soon as possible.

Tickets: £6.50 available from the Cathedral Box Office or the Entrance Desk in the Cathedral.
