Opening Times

Christ Church is a working academic and religious institution. Some areas such as the Hall and Cathedral will close to visitors when in use for private events or services. The Hall is often closed between 11.45 and 14.00 so that our students (in term) or resident guests (in vacation periods) may have lunch. Last entry into the Hall or Cathedral will be 15-30 minutes prior to the closure time detailed below. Known closures will be published on this website in advance but please note that occasionally closures may change or occur at short notice and we cannot guarantee that the Hall or Cathedral will be open at the time of your visit.

At busy times, particularly at weekends, queues will form for entry into Christ Church and also the Hall and Cathedral. Please allow extra time during this period. You may wish to consider visiting on a weekday when we are not quite as busy. Final ticket sales are at 16.15. It may be necessary for us to stop people joining the queue at 15.45/16.00 to ensure that we can close the gates at 16.15. Please ensure you factor this into your visit and arrive in good time. You are encouraged to book tickets online when possible.
