Parish Pilgrimage Booking Form

The Cathedral Chapter warmly invites parishes in the Diocese to visit the Cathedral, to share in its worship and discover its history.

The usual programme for the day is as follows:

  • 3pm Arrive at Christ Church (Tom Gate entrance)
  • 3:15pm Guided Tour of the Cathedral & Chapter House
  • 4.30pm Afternoon tea in the Great Hall
  • 5:15pm A talk, or a tour of the gardens
  • 6pm Choral Evensong

There will be a charge for the tea but not for the guided tour. Tea is provided in the Great Hall. You can choose from the menus below (please choose one menu for the whole group), and indicate your choice when you are asked for final numbers two weeks prior to your visit:

Queen’s Tea: Cake Selection [2 per person from a selection of 3] and Tea with Milk or Lemon and Filter Coffee £4.60 + VAT per person
