Installed and opened in 1993, entrance to the Gallery on the third floor is included in the price of our Tower Experience, and accessible directly from the first stage lift in the Tower.

It consists of a large, internal gallery at the west end of the cathedral, some 16m (52.6ft) above the cathedral floor level.

It houses our exquisite and unique collection of Victorian and Edwardian ecclesiastical embroidery, and offers fantastic views of the Cathedral interior from a great height - an ideal visit for those whose passions are embroidery and architecture, both modern and traditional.

The Cathedral Shop sells an extensive range of Elizabeth Hoare books, cards and gifts plus the new embroidery guide filled with stunning photography. Buy online or visit the Cathedral Shop.
