We are delighted to have a vibrant Schools and Family Learning department, welcoming primary and secondary school visits for many different learning opportunities.

Working from the Bowerbank Room, a modern purpose-built space in the Cathedral’s Hostry Visitor and Education Centre, our team of educators enjoy inspiring thousands of young people every year.

Our team of teachers and guides bring alive the wonderful history of Norwich Cathedral as an ancient sacred space and its story of faith, and they work with you and your learning objectives to ensure your pupils get the most out of their visit.

We have a brilliant selection of themed educational visits to choose from in our brochures for Primary KS 1-2 and Secondary KS 3-5:

While visiting Norwich Cathedral is the best way to experience this stunning centuries-old space, we know this is not always easy.

As well as offering educational opportunities at the Cathedral, our team can also bring the Cathedral to your school. From meeting Edith Cavell to experiencing the Christmas story; from arch building and Norman history to a specialist RE day – we can tailor the day specifically to your needs.

In-school visits cost £3.50 per pupil. See our brochures for more details of programmes which can be adapted for in-school visits:


We are keen to build links with home educating families and host regular days on themes ranging from history and RE to art and science.

The days are aimed at ages 7-13 unless otherwise stated and include lots of hands-on activities as well as ideas to continue your learning at home.

They normally run 10am-1pm and cost £4.50 per child.

All children must be accompanied by an adult.

Once dates are announced, they can be booked on the Cathedral’s TicketSource page.
