Bell Tower Tours (SOLD OUT)
AboutTake a tour of the Cathedral as you have never seen it before and find out more about our ring of bells at this special Bell Tower tour.
You will be met by a member of our Bell Tower Ringing Team before climbing the steps to the bell-tower; on the way you’ll discover some of the history of the Cathedral and get some magnificent views of the medieval glass in the Eastern window, the Ewan Christian starlight ceiling and the Father Willis organ. Once inside the ringing room you will have a chance to see the bell-ringers in action and learn more about this ancient skill.
