Library Tour

Dates throughout the year | 10:30-12:00
The Library, tucked away at the top of a spiral staircase, is one of the Cathedral's best-loved treasures. We are pleased to be able to open the library for a series of public tours this year. Climb the 35 spiral steps, see the library for yourself and explore some of our fascinating, and internationally significant book collection.
This year's tour will include books and manuscripts from the library of William Seymour, 2nd Duke of Somerset, 1588-1660, including a 1420 illuminated copy of The Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer.
