Disabled Access Day 2019

You and Somewhere New

On Saturday 16 March we are taking part in the national Disabled Access Day 2019 and opening our doors to disabled people and their families.

Craft activities at Disabled Access DayCraft activities at Disabled Access Day

Whilst we aim to improve accessibility every day of the year, Disabled Access Day will put disabled people at the heart of Cathedral life. Activities throughout the day include TouchTours led by Cathedral guides, clay and mosaic workshops and pop-up discovery tables as well as guided tours. Multimedia guides that have British Sign Language, subtitles, audio described and family tours will be available for visitors. 

Entry is free for disabled people and their friends and family. No need to book in advance for entry; just turn up on the day. Entrance for Disabled Access Day is via the North Transept of the Cathedral.
