Chronological Stained Glass Tour

Wells Cathedral

Stained glass window at Wells Cathedral


Ticket TypeTicket Tariff
Adult£10.00 per ticket



Wells Cathedral has one of the most substantial collections of medieval stained glass in England.  We offer three different stained glass special interest tours, this one follows the development, design and glass making techniques as shown in the Cathedral’s important collection of glass covering 700 years from the late 1200s to the early 1900s. Please bring binoculars if you can, as some of the images are small and high up.

This tour is part of our programme of pre-bookable special interest tours for 2017 which offer an insight into our Cathedral embroideries, stained glass, carvings, gothic architecture and chained library and which are led by our highly trained and enthusiastic Cathedral Guides. 

Public Transport Directions

Wells is easily reached by both car and public transport. Regular bus services to and from Wells operate from Bath (No. 173) and other destinations locally. There are several car parks near the Cathedral and a wide range of local cafes, restaurants and bars to help you to make a day of it, including our own Cathedral café. Why not make a day of it at the popular Wells Market held every Wednesday and Saturday. Please see our website for details.
