Ely Cathedral Specialist Tour: Encountering Ely Cathedral’s Modern Art

New for 2021! Join us on one of our ‘Specialist Tours’ to find out even more about the fascinating history of Ely Cathedral.

Encountering Ely Cathedral’s Modern Art – Ely Cathedral is steeped in history and heritage, and the beauty of its medieval architecture can seem timeless. But the story of the Cathedral continues to the present day, with each new generation making its own mark.

Explore the cathedral from a fresh perspective on this tour which focuses on its 20th century art. Encounter modern works which often go unnoticed or unremarked, by artists including David Wynne and Peter Eugene Ball. Find out the fascinating stories behind the pieces – how and why they came into being, what they represent, and who were the artists who created them.

What’s included: Ground floor admission to the Cathedral (no need to buy a Visitor ticket), a guided tour and a two course lunch in the Almonry Restaurant.

Tickets: £30 per person (for up to 5 people with a guide). Tickets must be purchased 1 day before your visit.
