School Visits

School Visits

Canterbury Cathedral has a tradition of visitor welcome that reaches back to the days of medieval pilgrimage. We extend this warm welcome to all school groups and hope they will enjoy the Cathedral’s rich history.

The information provided on the pages in this section will help you to organise your visit, but please contact the Schools’ department, tel 01227 865262, if you need any assistance.

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

Please aim to arrive at the ‘pre-booked’ entrance at Christ Church Gate at least 10 minutes before the scheduled start of activities, and inform us if you are delayed.
