Friday June 14th the Cathedral is only open for private prayer due to an event

The Cloisters

The Cloisters on the south side of the Cathedral form a peaceful lawned courtyard.

Enclosed by the Cathedral on one side and by the ancient walls of monastic buildings on the other, the Cloisters have the feel of a large private garden.

This evocative setting is well suited for open air theatre, concerts, alfresco dining, cocktail parties and family events. Marquees can provide shelter in the cooler months.

The Cloisters are a popular choice for a summer reception with live music or for drinks prior to a dinner in the Nave.
