*Castle All Inclusive tickets and Castle & Cathedral Joint tickets
The Castle All Inclusive tickets and Castle and Cathedral Joint tickets give you access to the Medieval Wall Walk, Victorian Prison and Magna Carta. They also include a FREE RETURN VISIT within 6 months of purchase and £2 off our guide book. The free return visit is also redeemable on castle event days subject to availability. On their return visit, visitors must present their original castle ticket for entry to the castle and their cathedral 'return visit' ticket for entry to the cathedral.
Please note that on event days the only ticket option available is the All Inclusive ticket. The nature of our events means that we cannot offer the Medieval Wall Walk or Prison and Magna Carta ticket options on event days.
Access to the cathedral is limited from time to time when there are services or other events on. Please check the cathedral's website for details . Entry is free of charge on Sundays but restricted access applies.
