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 on weekdays between 11.45 and 14.00 and on Saturdays between 10.00 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. It may be necessary for us to stop people joining the queue at 15.45/16.00 if we are at capacity on-site and close the gates earlier than stated above. Please ensure you factor this into your visit and arrive in good time. You are encouraged to book tickets online when possible. At peak times ticket sales may be suspended temporarily throughout the day to ensure we do not exceed our capacity on-site.
