About this Event

Built during the Gilded Age and Progressive Era, The Cathedral of St. John the Divine in upper Manhattan is a product of its time — and one that is still unfinished over 125 years later. But how did the world's largest cathedral end up in New York City? It's time to uncover the history and architecture of the world’s largest cathedral from ground floor to roof.

Join New York Adventure Club for an exclusive, after-hours vertical tour of The Cathedral of St. John the Divine, the mother church of the Episcopal Diocese of New York and the Seat of its Bishop.

Held after St. John closes to the public, our behind-the-scenes experience at the largest cathedral in the world will include:


  • A discussion around the history and story behind the cathedral, and why it's built in two different architectural styles
  • An exclusive look at the famous Guastavino tile spiral staircase
  • A trip all the way up one of the cathedral's spiral staircases with stops along the way including the triforium, a buttress, and ceiling above the nave — a total of 124 feet
  • A closer look at stained glass windows, sculptures, and grand architecture only seen from high above the ground floor

Our experience will conclude on the roof for sweeping views of the NYC skyline!

See you there!



*Due to the cathedral's COVID-19 protocols, guests must be fully vaccinated against the SARS-CoV-2 virus (proof of vaccination required at door) and be wearing a mask while inside the building's premises

**Please bring water and wear a comfortable pair of shoes as we’ll be doing a lot of walking and stair climbing for the duration of the tour — 10 stories in total!

***Please note that the spiral stairwells are quite narrow, and can be uncomfortable for those with claustrophobia — if you choose to not ascend the cathedral stairs, you may wait on the ground floor for the group to return
