Guildford Cathedral

After a major refurbishment, Guildford Cathedral in Surrey will now be offering new guided tours for groups.

The cathedral will be providing a range of tours which will all be led by expert guides, themed by history and religion.

The tours are suitable for groups of between ten and 15 people, although larger groups can also be accommodated for.

What to expect 

There are a number of new tours, including: The Guildford Cathedral Tour, The Treasury and Vestment Tour, and The Tower Tour.

Each guided experience explores various parts of the cathedral and the history behind them.

The tours last approximately one hour but can be adapted to suit the needs of each group.

The cathedral offers a range of exclusive packages for tour organisers and groups as well, which include lunch deals combined with tours.
