Opening Times

Normal entry times to visit as a tourist or to see the tomb of King Richard III are:

Monday – Saturday:  10.00am – 5.00pm
Sunday:  12.30pm – 2.30pm

Leicester Cathedral is generally open for prayer and worship from:

Monday – Saturday:  8.00am – 6.00pm
Sunday:  8.00am – 4.00pm

There are events, festivals and services ( e.g. funerals and recitals) which interrupt this pattern week by week.  If in doubt, please telephone and check during normal office hours.

During our daily services of Morning Prayer (8.30am), Eucharist (1.00pm Tuesday – Friday) and Evensong/Evening Prayer (5.30pm), everyone is welcome to join us, but it is not possible to visit as a tourist or to see the tomb at these times.

Entry to Leicester Cathedral is free to individual visitors, though there is a suggested donation of £3.

Groups of over 10 need to book in advance and there is a charge for their visits.

Guided and unguided tours are available. To book a large group tour, visit our Bookings and Tours page.
