There is nothing more atmospheric than visiting Canterbury Cathedral as evening falls. After closing for public visits, the Cathedral winds down and takes on an atmosphere of peace and serenity, with no visitors.

To create a very special and memorable evening, we have combined a private evening guided tour of the Cathedral with an exclusive 3-course à la carte dinner, with a pianist to entertain, in our Refectory Restaurant.

Start your evening with the chance to explore Canterbury Cathedral when it is closed to the public and enjoy an exclusive ‘out of hours’ tour. Without the usual crowds you can truly appreciate the vast grandeur of this magnificent building for yourself and enjoy at atmospheric experience.

On our expert-led guided tour you will be able to learn more about the fascinating history and stunning architecture of Canterbury Cathedral, with the chance to gain access to some parts of the Cathedral which are not always open to the public, such as the Huguenot Chapel, the Buffs Chapel and the Lady Chapel.
