Guildford Cathedral is the People’s Cathedral - a place of welcome, worship, inspiration and engagement for people of all ages. There is no charge for entry.

When you visit you will see that we are doing extensive works to the building. Nevertheless we are open for visitors and for worship and the 'way in' will be clearly marked.

You can follow the progress of our works, The People's Cathedral Project, on Facebook and Twitter.

Details of all our services can be found under the diary pages and Whats On.

The near completion of The People’s Cathedral project was celebrated on Saturday 8 July. Canon Julie welcomed all to the Cathedral and the Mayor of Guildford opened the event. There was be a fascinating day of talks, tours and trails with live music from the Royal School of Military Music. It was great to welcome in excess of 300 people to the Cathedral to celebrate the success of the project, from babies in arms to someone celebrating a ninety-something birthday. There was something for everyone during the day.

From 5 August there will be regular Tower Tours and from 17 August there will be regular scheduled tours within the Cathedral. Please go to the Tours page for further information.

During The People’s Cathedral project we have had two artists-in-residence and until August there is a display of work by the Cabinet of Curiosities (Edmund Salter and Caroline Collinge) in the South Garth.  They work entirely in paper and so the beautiful pieces are fragile.  Please do take some time to see this exquisite work.  

We look forward to welcoming you to the Cathedral whether it be to a service, to visit or to attend one of our special events. Come on up and come on in.

The People's Cathedral project is in full swing with works to the Cathedral building under way. Thanks to the generosity of so many, including the Heritage Lottery Fund, we are cataloguing and digitising our extensive archive, capturing first hand stories of those who built the Cathedral and improving our display and visitor facilities. The Cathedral remains open to visitors. Read more from behind the scenes and our artist. Alongside the People’s Cathedral project, our organ is being renovated. Together, the Cathedral Appeal raised more than £6.9m.
