Stained Glass Window Tours

Light is important within many faiths. Christians proclaim that Jesus is the light of the world, and churches have utilised the properties of light to illuminate the story of Jesus and his followers through glass. Although there has been a church on this site for nearly a thousand years, most of what you can now see in Leicester Cathedral is a product of work from the 1800s.  More recently, the Redemption Windows situated in St Katharine’s Chapel next to the Tomb of Richard III were installed by the artist Thomas Denny in 2016.

Join us for a tour around the Cathedral to learn about the stained glass windows, including Leicester’s First World War memorial, the Richard III Redemption windows, the John Sarson Memorial Window telling the story of St Martin, and more!
