FREE Explorer Backpacks for Kids

Throughout the year activity backpacks are also available to borrow free of charge from the entrance desk. These are designed to help you and your child become Cathedral explorers using binoculars, magnifying glasses and compasses. The Cathedral has been able to develop this resource thanks to support from Groundwork UK and Big Lottery Fund's Community Spaces.

The bags have different themes including elephants, cats, hedgehogs, owls, Noah's Ark and churches. They also include items such as puppets, puzzles and storybooks for you to enjoy. If you would like to reserve one of these in advance of your visit give us a call on 01392 285983.
