Groups & Tours

At Carlisle Cathedral, we are lucky enough to have a group of dedicated volunteers who will be happy to guide you round the building and tell you stories to enrich your experience. Both formal and informal tours are offered. For group visits, please book in advance to avoid disappointment.


Our volunteer Guides and Welcomers are happy to answer any question during your visit. Please note that we cannot guarantee that a Guide will be available at all times.

During the peak season, we often run informal free guided tours. Places are limited for these tours and we advise booking in advance. Tours will appear on our online calendar when available. Use the search box to search for ‘tours’.
