Current Exhibition

There will be scaffolding inside the Cathedral while the People's Cathedral project is underway. It is not possible to stage exhibitions during this period. We intend to stage exhibitions again when the project finishes in Spring 2017.


Art has the capacity to transform human imagination, sometimes to challenge, and always to enrich faith.

At its best, art is a reflection of the work of the Holy Spirit enabling us to see more clearly and truthfully into the beauty of an intricate and complex world.

Bishop Rowan Williams has said, ‘Christians have always associated the Spirit with the life of the imagination and the arts: here is the gift that makes it possible to see life itself shining in things and people’. Art at Guildford Cathedral is offered in that spirit.

The Cathedral's simple and peaceful interior provides an inspiring setting for our programme of art exhibitions. 


Viewing times to visit the Cathedral and view art exhibitions are Monday to Saturday 9.30am – 4.30pm. Exhibitions are hosted in the Cathedral’s nave, an uncluttered, light and airy space. Before visiting please check the forthcoming events to ensure the Cathedral is available. Free Admission.


Exhibitions range from paintings, photographs and sculpture by local artists to topical national exhibitions. If you would like to investigate the possibility of holding an exhibition in the Cathedral please contact Emma Law, the Dean's PA, at or 01483 547862.
