Event Details

Gloucester Cathedral’s medieval fan-vaulted cloister is famous all over the world. Harry Potter is partly to thank for that, but did you know that this style of architecture, used in so many well known buildings since, was invented right here in Gloucester? This guided tour showcases the Cathedral’s pioneering architecture which includes the world’s oldest surviving example of the Perpendicular style and explores how this was developed further in the wonderful Quire with its high, elegant walls and Great East stained glass window. The size of a tennis court, this was the largest window on the planet when it was built. The tour will also take you behind the scenes to the fascinating roof space above the South Transept ceiling which allows you to see how the vault was constructed.
