Sorry I didn't see any wheel chairs but if you contacted the Cathedral I'm sure they could advise you on what to do. Perhaps it would be a good idea to go to Sunday service in the cathedral, as there are no tours that day & you would at least be able to see the inside of this magnificent building without struggling in crowds.
