Prices and opening times
The ruins of the cathedral are open but there are fences surrounding the walls of the Cathedral, and a section of the graveyard and a number of unstable gravestones are also fenced off for safety until they can be stabilised. Due to essential maintenance, St Rule's Tower and the Museum are currently closed (we anticipate the tower will reopen in spring 2024).
