Washington National Cathedral stands on a hilltop overlooking the National Capitol, like a chunk of medieval European and Gothic architectural history an American capital couldn't possibly own, and is one of the great architectural marvels of the city.
A 90-minute tour of the cathedral's interior with author and guide, Andy Bittner, is to be immersed in what just might be the most intense concentration of 20th-century handcraft on the planet.
- Experience the most amazing collections of 20th-century stained glass, carved stone, and needlepoint anywhere on earth
- See the famous Darth Vader grotesque... See it for yourself
- Enjoy amazing views of the city and surrounding region from the cathedral's Pilgrim Observation Gallery
Guests may stay in the Cathedral after the tour for as long as they like.


231 stained-glass windows, an amazing collection of architectural and ornamental wrought iron, hundreds of works of hand-stitched needlepoint, and a blizzard of hand-carved wood and stone surround you as you learn about the artists and the community that created this wonder.
