Visit Us Opening times Opening times Cathedral The cathedral is open daily for visitors from 9.15 am until Evensong, which you are warmly invited to attend. Times may vary for services and special events. Please call if you are planning a special visit. Provided it is for personal use only, photography is permitted in the cathedral; no permit is required. If you are interested in joining one of the cathedral tours it is very important you make contact with the Visits Office first to ensure that tours are taking place that day.
