COVID-19 update: The cathedral is not currently open for general visits or tours but remains open for private prayer and reflection 11-3pm. All services are now online only and everyone is welcome to join.
Winchester Cathedral welcomes thousands of children and students on educational visits each year to explore themes across the curriculum. Our Director of Learning and Learning Officer, with the support of experienced volunteers, never take a one-size-fits-all approach to visits.
Making a booking
It is important that all visits are booked in advance even if you don’t want us to organise tours or activities. There are times when the Cathedral is closed or when access is restricted and we want your pupils or students to gain as much as possible from their visit to the Winchester Cathedral.
There is a small charge per pupil but accompanying adults are given free admission (based on the recommended number of adults to children).
