Children’s Trail: Fossils Rock! at Winchester Cathedral

About

Winchester Cathedral is supporting the Hampshire Cultural Trust’s big theme for 2015 – Dinosaurs! A brand new fun family trail will lead you through the Cathedral to discover the stories within the stones.

The Cathedral has stood for nearly 1000 years but the stone used to build it is millions of years old, created during a time when dinosaurs roamed the earth. This super trail calls for you to take on the role of a Time Detective and discover the unimaginably ancient history of Winchester Cathedral.

Available during normal visitor opening hours, Monday to Saturday 9.30am - 5pm and on Sunday 12.30pm - 3pm. Cathedral entry fees apply.
