We welcome thousands of children from schools across the world to the Cathedral every year. Many hundreds visit during our annual schools’ festivals: Church Schools Festival, Infant Schools Festival, Secondary Schools Festival and Special Schools Festival and we offer schools’ tours and trails throughout the academic year.

Lincoln Cathedral is an exceptional resource for learning outside the classroom. It offers opportunities for children and young people to explore many areas of the curriculum.

Facilities and advice for your visit

Toilets, including facilities for the disabled are located off the south walk of the Cloister.
