Temporary Closure of the Whispering Gallery

The Cathedral is deeply saddened at the death of a man here on Monday 1st April.

The Whispering Gallery is a safe place to visit with a high safety barrier in place, and many millions of people have visited it over the years. 

Continuing to ensure the safety of all our visitors, whatever the reason they are here, is paramount and we have been reviewing this carefully over the past few days. This includes the safety of those on the Cathedral floor. We have therefore taken the hard decision to close the Whispering Gallery whilst we assess whether there are any further safety measures that could be put in place. The Whispering Gallery is expected to remain closed until at least January 2021. 

Update from 13 July 2020: The Golden Gallery is closed due to physical distancing recommendations for COVID-19 prevention. The Stone Gallery remains open to the public.
