How many people can a guide show around the Cathedral?
We try to ensure that one guide only shows up to 20 people around. If your group is larger, no problem, as long as we know in advance we can arrange for more guides to be in the Cathedral.
Do I need to book a guided tour?
No, guides are available from 10.00am each day Monday - Saturday and from 12noon on Sunday. Booking is advised if coming as a large party but individual/family booking is not essential.
Who do I ring to enquire about the kind of tours on offer and to book my group in?
Jenny Moran on 0151 702 7284 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do I have to pay for a guided tour?
We ask for a suggested donation of £3.00 per person. The money helps support our maintenance and day-to-day running costs as well as helping to keep the Cathedral as Free Admission.
Can I park at the Cathedral?
Yes, we do have a car park which surrounds the Cathedral. It is a pay-on-exit system. For up to date car parking charges please ring The Constable's Lodge on 0151 702 7260. (Different rates may apply for special events held during either daytime or evening, please check the individual event entry in our 'What's On' section for details)
Are there accessible facilities from the car park to the Cathedral?
Yes, access to the main Cathedral floor is via a lift directly from the car park. There is also lift access to the differing levels on the ground floor and to the Lady Chapel, all suitable for wheelchair users
Am I allowed to take photographs inside the Cathedral?
Yes, you may, at any time EXCEPT during any service being held in the Cathedral where you may find yourself present (including smaller Chapels accessible to the public).
