We welcome thousands of visitors, school, faith and community groups throughout the year. If you have time, we strongly recommend that you stay for Mass and experience the beauty of the liturgy. Westminster Cathedral is free to enter and we also offer a variety of guided tours to enhance your visit.
The Campanile is open to the public. Take the lift up to the Viewing Gallery with its breathtaking views of London north, south, east, and west.
In the summer months, the Cathedral Guides run short “highlights” tours which may be booked in advance.
Westminster Cathedral is a beacon for schools wanting to learn more about the history and practice of the Catholic faith. We offer bespoke teaching resources that cover the key stages relevant to children preparing for First Holy Communion, and young adults preparing for the Sacrament of Confirmation. Please get in touch and discuss your requirements.
