To welcome back visitors, and to thank everyone for their continuing support, there will be a reduced admission of £5 per adult and children under 16 will be free.

This offer will run until Saturday, September 5, and the usual admission fees will resume on Monday, September 7. As always, the cathedral remains free of charge on Sundays.

The Very Rev Christine Wilson, Dean of Lincoln, said: “Lincoln Cathedral is a place of hospitality and welcome for all, so it is a great joy once again to invite visitors to come and explore this sacred space, discover its rich history and enjoy its unique and peaceful atmosphere.

“Now that the necessary measures are in place, the whole team here is delighted to offer a warm welcome both to those who have visited before, and to those who are stepping inside Lincoln Cathedral for the first time.”

The majority of the cathedral will be open for visitors to explore and enjoy, including the cathedral shop and toilets, although the library, some chapels and the refectory will remain closed.

Lincoln Cathedral has been awarded the “Good to Go” mark by Visit Britain.

The UK-wide industry standard and consumer mark demonstrates that the cathedral is following government and public health guidance in relation to Covid-19.

A one-way system is in place and hand sanitiser stations available to use around the building.

In line with Church of England and government guidance, visitors are asked to wear face coverings in all areas of the cathedral.
