Lincoln Cathedral opens to visitors in August

Visitors will get discounted entry too

By Local Democracy Reporter

Lincoln Cathedral will fully reopen to allow tourists, pilgrims and general visitors inside from next Wednesday.

The cathedral opens to the public on August 5, the first time since it had to close in late March due to COVID-19.

It is the final step in a gradual return, reopening on June 15 for private prayer, and on July 5 for gathered worship.

People will now be allowed to visit the Cathedral for a reduced price of £5 per adult, with children under 16 going free for a limited time only.

The doors open from 10am to 4pm Monday to Saturday, and 11am to 3:30pm on Sundays.

The Very Revd 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.”

General admission fees will return to normal on Monday, September 7.
