Chapels

Guildford Cathedral has three beautiful chapels:

Due to the organ refurbishment The Regimental Chapel is currently closed to visitors.

  • The Chapel of the Queen’s Royal Surrey Regiment was dedicated in 1959 to the Honour of King Charles the Martyr (King Charles I, father of King Charles II). The Queen’s Royal Regiment was founded in 1661 as the Tangiers Regiment on the marriage of King Charles II and Catherine of Braganza.
  • The Lady Chapel contains a figure of the Madonna and Child, carved in lignum vitae, a rare hardwood from South America. Opposite is the Foundation Stone of the Cathedral. The Chapel was consecrated on 1st May 1964 and has been used for daily worship ever since.
  • The Children’s Chapel is one of very few in the country. This is a truly special place that provides visitors with a pleasant, warm and comfortable room. The Chapel contains the book of remembrance of children who are no longer with us. It is a place for bereaved parents to come for peaceful remembrance and reflection. Many leave cards and mementos to mark special occasions. It is also a space for our younger visitors to use and provides a much more ‘to-scale’ environment for children, than the large, bright setting of the Cathedral’s Nave. The chapel has a number of decorative features including carved wooden figures, the children’s window and the beautifully painted ceiling.
