The Cathedral was cold, dismal and colourless when Queen Victoria came to the throne.

This tour traces its transformation and introduces colourful Victorian personalities associated with the Cathedral including Soapy Sam; the Bishop of Borneo; the anti muckabite Dean Garnier and the inspiration for one of Trollope’s characters.

After the tour enjoy a coffee or hot drink with a homemade cake in the Refectory. Discuss and ask questions about what you have seen and experienced in the Cathedral.

The tour will last approximately 1 hour and must be booked in advance due to limited spaces.
