Canterbury Cathedral has a tradition of visitor welcome that reaches back to the days of medieval pilgrimages. We extend this warm welcome to all school groups that come to The Cathedral and we want you to get the most out of your visit.

In order to do this you will need to plan your visit carefully and the information provided on the pages in this section will help you to do this. If you require any further information please contact the Schools department directly on or 01227 865262.

To enjoy the group rate, groups must pre-book their visit even if they only intend to have an entrance only visit. Unbooked groups are charged at a higher rate.

Please note you should aim to arrive at the ‘pre-booked’ entrance at Christ Church Gate at least 10 minutes before the scheduled start of activities. Please try to inform us if you are going to be late.
