Planning my Visit

People visit Leicester Cathedral from far and wide for all sorts of reasons, and we don’t want you to be disappointed after a long journey. So when you make your plans to visit us, you might like to check the following things:

  • Consult the What’s On menu for our general Opening and Standard Service Times.
  • Please consult the list of forthcoming Cathedral closures. Check also for any special Services or Events that may be taking place on the date you’re planning to visit.
  • Use the Find Us tab on this drop-down menu for general travel information.
  • If your visit is likely to involve 6 or more people, it may be advisable to check first with our Bookings Officer on 0116 261 5369 or by email so we can assure you of the best welcome.
  • If in doubt, give us a call in normal office hours on 0116 261 5373, and our small but friendly office team will be pleased to help you.

There is no general admission charge to visit the cathedral, but we do invite all our visitors to make a voluntary donation before leaving. We recommend you think in terms of £3 per adult visitor. If it is more convenient this can be done by text. Group tours do incur a charge, and this would be arranged through our Bookings Manager.
