Please ask the Welcomer who greets you when you arrive if there’s a Steward on duty who can give you a tour of the ground floor of the Priory. Our charge for this service is £6.50 per adult, £4.50 for students and children under 16: tickets available online and from the Box Office.
We also have Tower Stewards on duty on some days: a notice will be displayed when one is available. Tower Tours involve climbing 176 steps on an ancient spiral staircase to get a spectacular view towards Salisbury in one direction and the Isle of Wight and the Jurassic Coast in the other. Charges are £6 for adults, £4 for students and children over 8 years: tickets from the Box Office.
Between March and October we run special tours to parts of the building not generally open to the public: the Tower, Ringing Room and Bell Room (176 steps); St Michael’s Loft Museum (75 steps), the roof space above the Nave (103 steps, tight spaces and some clambering), and 2 of the 3 Crypts. A tour of the ground floor is included with these.
Prices are £7.50 for adults, £5.50 for students and children (must be over 8 for the tower). Prior booking is essential: you can book online from the 'Services and Events' menu, in person at the Priory Box Office (normally open Monday to Saturday 11:00 hrs-14:00hrs), or call 01202 485804 Option 4.
