Experience Christmas Trail

Scroll to explore

Discover more about the Christmas story by exploring six activity stops hidden around the Minster.

Families can follow a special trail with items to look at, touch, smell and discuss at each point. Our Christmas themed Little Explorer Backpacks will also be available to help younger visitors explore the cathedral during this special festive season.

Each stop also has interpretation encouraging adult visitors to spend time reflecting on what each point tells us about the Christmas story.

Free with admission, collect your family trail and children’s backpack from the admission desks.
