All cathedral services are proceeded by public cathedral rehearsal, which visitors are generally welcome to observe (Tue/Wed/Thur: 4.30-5.30pm - Sat: 3.30-4.30pm - Sun: 2.00-3.00pm). The cathedral does not charge for entry for those attending services (although there is a collection taken), but does charge visitors during the day.
