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.

We are excited that from this Saturday, 5 August, there will be regular Tower Tours available for you to climb the 249 steps and see the wonderful views of the area surrounding Guildford. From 17 August there will be regular scheduled tours within the Cathedral. Please go to the Tours page for further information.

As The People’s Cathedral project comes to an end, over the last few weeks we have been delighted as parts of the Cathedral that have been covered up for the last year or so have come into view again, and we are getting our beautiful Cathedral back. We already have some of the Interpretation boards in the Cathedral and we have new leaflets for visitors.

If you haven't yet had a chance to come and see the beautiful Cathedral that has emerged from the scaffolding, please do take the opportunity to do so.

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.

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.
