We are very proud of the magnificent building here at Wakefield Cathedral and are always delighted to share it with visitors. Please feel free to wander round at your leisure, perhaps with a guidebook from the Cathedral Shop in the adjacent Treacy Hall.

We offer free informal tours of the Cathedral on Wednesdays for small groups, at 11.30am and 2.45pm. These tours are suitable for all ages, take around 45 minutes, and no booking is required, simply turn up and join us. *Please note that the free Wednesday tour series has finished for 2018 and will resume on Wednesday 9 January 2019 *

For larger groups we suggest that you call ahead to make arrangements for a guide, please call the office on 01924 373923 between the hours of 8.30am and 4.30pm Monday to Friday, or email us at

Two or three times a year we also offer Tower Tours for a small fee. These are advertised on our website when available, and pre-booking is essential. Details of how to book are contained within the published advertisments. Please note that we do not permit the public to look round the tower unacommpanied at other times for health and safety reasons.
