The Minster welcomes tens of thousands of visitors a year and is usually open every day. Check ‘Today at the Minster’.

Welcome and Information

We try to ensure that there are always members of the staff available to answer questions or to address special needs. During the busiest periods there are welcomers present, a virger on duty and staff in the shop (closed on Sundays).

As you enter the Minster, either by the main Highgate door or the accessible entrance, you will find a rack with leaflets that provide a self-guided tour of the building. The leaflets are available in several languages.

If you have a smart phone or tablet, you may wish to use our free Wi-Fi and give yourself a digital self guided tour.

More comprehensive guidebooks can be found in the shop, along with a range of gifts and souvenirs.

The shop is closed on Sundays but guidebooks and postcards are available from the stand near the main entrance.
