Where: Gloucester Cathedral

When: Saturday, December 15, 11.45am, 1.45pm and 2.45pm

There's a rare chance to visit Gloucester Cathedral's monastic library this Saturday (December 15).

You actually have three chances to enjoy a Winter Library Tour: "Christmas Story" at 11.45am, 1.45pm and 2.45pm.

The beautiful 15th century monastic library is hidden high above the Cathedral, up 38 spiral steps.

It is a gem that was originally part of the Abbey and holds a wonderful collection of books and manuscripts dating back to the 11th century.

Volunteers and the Cathedral archivist will share the story of the library and answer any questions you may have.

Tickets are £7, children £3, under 11s free and available on the day from the Cathedral Gift Shop.
