To celebrate the 190th birthday of William Morris, Bradford Cathedral are running a special Morris & Co. stained glass window tour on Saturday 23rd March 2024.

The famous Victorian artist and designer William Morris founded Morris & Co. and, along with renowned figures such as Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Edward Burne-Jones and Ford Madox Brown, created many pieces of stunning stained glass, some early examples of which are on display in four locations in Bradford Cathedral.

The stained glass also includes a figure, recently discovered to have been designed by William De Morgan.

The tour will be run twice, once at 11:30am and again at 1:30pm, and tickets are £6 + booking fee, available via the Bradford Cathedral website or on Eventbrite.

The tour of Bradford Cathedral will also include an appreciation of the magnificent West Window, a beautiful Pre-Raphaelite window designed by Heaton, Butler and Bayne, and will be followed by light refreshments.

Maggie Myers, Director of Education and Visitors, says: “In recent years, we have started to provide opportunities for visitors to come and find out more about some of the heritage treasures here at Bradford Cathedral. We are very fortunate to have some beautiful and significant early stained glass work by William Morris and other notable artists from the Victorian period.

The tour will visit each of the 4 areas in the building where the Morris & Co. glass is located and there will also be an appreciation of the stunning West Window by Heaton, Butler and Bayne. If you are an art lover, a stained glass window lover or a fan of all things Victorian, then this is the tour for you!

We provided similar tours on our recent Heritage Open Day about William Morris and they were very popular, which is why we have decided to run them again. Places are limited, so please book early to avoid disappointment."

The Morris & Co. Stained Glass Window Tour takes place on Saturday 23rd March at 11:30am and again at 1:30pm. Places are £6 + booking fee and can be booked at or
