Animal magic at the cathedral

An animal safari at St Albans Cathedral sounds unlikely - but it is happening this Sunday, February 1.
The free tour is a chance to discover the weird and wonderful animals that are represented throughout the building - ranging from pelicans, unicorns, peacocks and bears.
An expert guide will explain how animal imagery has been used to tell stories in the cathedral down the ages.
Aimed at both adults and younger visitors, it is the first in a series of More to Explore tours for 2015.
Chair of the Guides, Julia Low, said, “Our More to Explore tours have been developed to give visitors a more detailed look at some of the unique aspects and rare treasures at the cathedral. We hope to welcome lots of visitors on these tours which generally take place on the first Sunday of each month.”
