Normally during the summer we would welcome hundreds of visitors to the Cathedral Gardens to take part in guided tours. Unfortunately, due to the current restrictions in place, we are unable to offer our Garden Tours this year but instead will be opening the gardens for pre-booked visitors to tour themselves.
Visitors will be able to to explore the Chapter House, Cloister garden, Canon’s and Dean’s garden at their own leisure with our team of volunteer gardeners on hand to answer any questions. Spaces for the Open Gardens will be limited as to ensure that social distancing remains possible for visitors throughout their visit. Following on from the flooding in February which caused devastation to some of the gardens and the lockdown period in which the gardeners weren’t able to access the gardens to tend to them, our team of volunteers have been very hard at work to restore the gardens ready for this summer.
We will be offering three sessions throughout the day:
Session One: 10 – 11.30am
Session Two: 12 – 1.30 pm
Session Three: 2 – 3.30 pm.
Please ensure that you book for the correct time slot as we will not be able to change this once your ticket has been booked.
Accessibility Information: Chapter House & Cloisters Garden are both easily accessible for wheelchairs. Canon’s Garden and the Dean’s Garden have some areas with sloping lawns, gravel paths and a few steps but more accessible routes throughout the gardens can be suggested. If you require a carer’s ticket for this event or any further details on accessibility, please contact Jess Stallwood on firstname.lastname@example.org
