Literary Links – Special Tour 2021

1st Sep 2021 1:30pm - 1st Sep 2021 Event Type: Tour

On this tour you will discover some of the many literary links we have in the Cathedral, including ‘literary legends’ who are buried here and other writers with memorials. The building itself has inspired novelists such as Thomas Hardy and most recently Tracy Chevalier. Medieval conflict, Tudor intrigue and Victorian scandal have provided writers with some great material. Come and learn about these literary connections and listen to extracts spanning over four hundred years of Literature from Shakespeare to Hilary Mantel. 

This is a free tour however Cathedral entry fees apply.

This tour must be pre booked, if not, walk-ins on the day will be asked to wait until all other customers have arrived and if space is available they can then take the tour.
