Whilst visiting the Cotswolds, a truly stunning and famous cathedral opens its doors to you! Gloucester Cathedral is one of England’s finest buildings that is famous not just for its links with Harry Potter and other TV shows but it’s stunning architecture that spans over 1,000 years. For those Harry Potter fans, Gloucester Cathedral was used in three of its films and whilst you are visiting you can take time to see the locations in the cathedral that were used.
Gloucester Cathedral’s Tower Climb will give you the opportunity to see breath taking views of the Cotswolds and on a clear day you can see up to 40 miles across the countryside to the Malvern Hills. As you climb the winding medieval spiral staircase with its 269 steps of Gloucester’s most iconic landmark during your private tour, take in the history and along the way you’ll get behind the scene access to its ancient roof spaces. On the way up the tower, you’ll have the opportunity to visit the ringing chamber and the bell chamber where you’ll see ‘Great Peter’; the only medieval bell of its size that is still in use in England.
After taking in the stunning views, you have the chance to explore the Crypt in the cathedral. As you descend the steps from the South Transept of the cathedral you will be able to explore the hidden level of the Cathedral. This is where you’ll see aspects of the very earliest parts of the cathedral.
You could also treat yourself and that special someone for a special private tour of the tower for two, for a once in a lifetime experience. The views at the top are truly breath-taking, and to share with that a special someone would be truly unforgettable experience.
This company is awesome, they are revitalising what can be done in the countryside and are bringing locals with stories to tell closer to mainstream tourism. We met local farmers, a bee-keeper, we learnt to stonewall, read unseen letters from Elizabeth I at a private castle and even had tea with the owner and gardener of a private Cotswold manor. Our 5 days in the Cotswolds was truly like no...
