From Monday 14 August to Friday 1 September 2017, visitors coming to the Cathedral with children will be able to borrow one of our Explorer Backpacks.
The Explorer Backpacks can be picked up from our Volunteer Hosts in the Schools Department (21/08-25/08)– the backpacks provide a fun and interactive trail as well as helpful tools for all to enjoy.
Inside the backpacks are binoculars, magnifying glasses and magnetic compasses – all to help young explorers investigate many of the beautiful and extraordinary places and objects within the Cathedral.
Backpacks are available from 11.00 – 16.00hrs (last issue at 15.00hrs) each day. There is no charge to use the Explorer Backpacks, but usual Precincts charges apply. Children must be accompanied at all times.
