Tower Tours will begin at Peterborough Cathedral this Easter weekend.
The tours, led by a knowledgeable volunteer guide, takes visitors up the steep stone stairs and onto walkways looking down into the body of the Cathedral.
It goes past the bell ringing chamber and the rare 13th Century wooden winch used by the medieval masons, taking in close-up glimpses of the stained glass and stonework. It also emerges at the top of the tower, near the flag pole. On a fine day you can see views over the city, and sometimes as far as Ely.
Tower Tours, which last around 1 hour and 30 minutes, are scheduled for Saturday March 26 at 11.30am and 1.45pm, bank holiday Monday at 1.45pm and Wednesday March 30 at 1.45pm.
