    St John the Baptist Cathedral Tours

    St John the Baptist RC Cathedral are opening their doors for tours this summer.  The tower as well as the beautiful grounds will be on offer to the visiting public each Saturday throughout the Summer up until the end of September

    Exquisite views and beautiful scenery can be seen from the top of the tower but don’t forget to stop off during the 280 step climb to catch your breath at the crossing balcony to view the transept and nave from great heights.  Tower tours will take place at 1:30pm.

    Cathedral ground floor tours are also available and these will offer a fascinating insight into the spirituality, superb architecture and interesting history of this magnificent building nestled in the heart of Norwich.  The ground floor tour will begin at 11:30am.

    Don’t forget to take time to sample mouth-watering delicacies and refreshments after your tour in the delightful café overlooking the wonderful gardens full of summer flora and fauna.

    Costs are £5 per adult and £3.50 per child (children must be 8 years old or 130cm tall) and although booking isn’t required, we do suggest you arrive early to avoid disappointment.
