Docent-led Tours of Memorial Church

Main content start

Stanford Memorial Church is the physical heart of the campus, replete with stained glass windows, mosaics, and stone carvings. Tours are led by trained docents who share a wealth of knowledge about the church.

Tours are held every Friday starting at 11 AM.  Please meet in front of the church before the tour starts. No reservations are required for groups smaller than 10.

Note: Tours are not held on University holidays, during church services, and during Winter Closure.

For large groups (more than 10 attendees), please contact the docent tour program at least two weeks in advance to make arrangements.
