Have you ever wondered what a great Cathedral would have looked like to those for whom it was originally built - ie. before electric light was invented?

Ancient times have been recreated for this special evening when the Cathedral will be lit entirely by candlepower.

The atmosphere will be very special, and we have arranged a Senior Guide /Bursar to tell the story of the Cathedral in a private tour of around an hour. You’ll be surprised at the features you see that are not visible in daylight.

To finish off we will return to College Hall which will also be candlelit to enjoy non-alcoholic hot punch (made to the guide’s secret recipe!) with some homemade shortbread/biscuits. The guides will join us there to answer any further questions and round off the evening.

Dress warmly, as heating is fairly ineffective in so grand a structure.

 

We meet and finish at College Hall which is beside the Cathedral within the unique 13th century medieval fortifications of the Close. If you approach the Cathedral from the front, College Hall is on the right hand side down Cathedral Close, before you get to St Johns and Chapters.

There is lots of parking nearby, but Cathedral Close itself has no parking except for blue badge holders. The nearest car park is Bird Street from where it is a short pedestrianised stroll.
