The Cathedral Square Wheel comes to Birmingham this May!

Cathedral Square Wheel opens its gates in the historic grounds of Birmingham Cathedral, locally known as Pigeon Park, situated on Colmore Row. From 24 May – 1 September, this attraction promises to be the region’s summer highlight.

Cathedral Square Wheel is brought to you by Danter Attractions, who are no strangers to bringing thrill and excitement to the city with Christmas in Cathedral Square, Ice Skate Birmingham and the famous Christmas wheel in Centenary Square.

Step into a world of wonder as Cathedral Square Wheel invites you to embark on a journey unlike any other. For the first time in Cathedral Square, riders will ascend to breathtaking heights, reaching the height of the Selfridges Birmingham building at a staggering 35 metres high. With opening hours from 11 AM to 10 PM daily, there’s ample time to experience the thrills and delights this attraction has to offer.

Glide through the air in one of our 24 spacious gondolas, each capable of accommodating up to 6 people, ensuring a comfortable and memorable journey. Immerse yourself in the vibrant history and culture of Birmingham with captivating commentary provided by the renowned Carl Chinn, adding depth and insight to your aerial adventure. Join us as we redefine excitement and create unforgettable moments above the cityscape.

Anna Pitt, CEO at Birmingham Cathedral, said: “We are constantly striving to offer new and exciting experiences to our visitors, and Cathedral Square Wheel will provide a unique perspective on Birmingham’s skyline. We also want to encourage everyone, especially first-time visitors, to step into the cathedral and see our stunning and colourful windows for themselves – looking at their very best following the Divine Beauty conservation work which was completed late last year. Our beautiful building and centrally-located green space provide the perfect surroundings for various attractions throughout the year, and we are looking forward to working with our partners at Danter Attractions to bring this venture to life over the summer.”
