Bell Ringing Demonstration and Tower Tours

Ring the bells and see the view!
This Saturday, 27th August, is the Cathedral Bell Ringers Open Day.

Derby Cathedral is hosting a Bellringers’ Tower Open Day and an exhibition of photographs of the bells between 10am and 4pm.

Tower climbs will be offered every half hour and will take in the views from the top of the tower across Derbyshire.

The Carillon is like a giant musical box that plays tunes on the Cathedral’s ten bells.

At the 11.30am climb, visitors will be able to see and hear the Carillon in action.


Visitors will see the ‘oldest ring of ten’ in the world, learn about bell ringing and have the opportunity to ring a bell themselves!

Admission is £2 for adults and £1 for children (only children age 8 years and older are allowed up the tower).
