From January 2 onwards free guided tours will usually be available twice a day at 11.30am and 2pm, Monday to Saturday.

The move is to encourage more people to find out about the magnificent architectural treasures of the building and hear its amazing stories.

In addition to these regular guided tours, a new programme of specialist tours with a focus on particular aspects of the building and its story are to be introduced.
