Temporary Closure of the Whispering Gallery
04 April 2019
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 December 2019.
The Stone and Golden Galleries will remain open.
