New Cathedral Card scheme for visitors

WELLS Cathedral has launched a new ‘Cathedral Card’ which became available to all its visitors from January 25.

By making a modest one-off annual purchase and becoming a Cathedral Card holder, visitors can make the most of what is on offer throughout the year while helping to secure the Cathedral’s future.

Card holders will get a ten per cent discount on purchases in the Cathedral Shop and The Loft Cafe, priority booking for selected events, seasonal offers and promotions, and a free place on any pre-booked tour.

Alexia James, Commercial Operations Director at Wells Cathedral, said: “Wells Cathedral is a pillar of our community. Making any kind of contribution helps to secure its future and the vital work that it does. The Cathedral Card is a great way for frequent and local visitors to show their support for this much-loved icon of our city, while making the most of what’s on offer here the year round.”

The Cathedral Card is available in three tiers: Adult (£20), Joint (£35), and Family (£40).

As a way of supporting the local community, there are reduced rates for residents of the BA5 postal area: Adult (£15), Joint (£25), and Family (£30).

The Cathedral Card is valid for one year from the date of purchase, with the option to renew annually.
