There is plenty to see in Sheffield Cathedral and we will be pleased to help you to get the most from your visit.

Guided Tours

Our trained guides are often available to take you on a tour of the Cathedral to show you some of its highlights, including the Tudor Shrewsbury Chapel, the Regimental Chapel of St George (York and Lancaster Regiment) and the Medieval Chancel and Sanctuary. These tours last approximately 45 minutes.

For larger groups, and for those making a special journey, please contact us to pre-book a guided tour. These last approximately 1 hour and can be tailored to special interests. We can also offer a package including refreshments.

New for Spring 2015

We will be launching a Two-Centre Visit Package in partnership with Sheffield Manor Lodge for groups wishing to explore the story of the Shrewsbury Earls, Bess of Hardwick and Mary Queen of Scots in Tudor Sheffield. More details coming soon.

Heritage Talks

We offer a full programme of heritage talks at the Cathedral by local experts on subjects such as the Stained Glass Windows of Christopher Webb, The Regimental Chapel of the York and Lancaster Regiment and the Shrewsbury Chapel. We also regularly feature guest speakers on subjects linked to the wider history of Sheffield.

Our programme of Heritage Talks is available from our Welcome Desk or click here to download a pdf programme.  Tickets are £3.50 each and they can be purchased from the Cathedral Shop.

Outreach Talks

The Cathedral Heritage Learning Officer regularly visits local history groups, U3A, Probus and Rotary etc to present an entertaining and informative illustrated talk entitled ‘Sheffield Cathedral – 900 Years of Sheffield History – in One Building’. This gives a history of Sheffield as told by its Cathedral, from medieval times to the present day.
