Guildford Cathedral is facing a significant funding crisis.
Please donate to help keep the cathedral open for everyone.

No, I'd prefer to donate another time


Welcome to Guildford Cathedral...

Did you see Guildford Cathedral on Great British Railway Journeys?

We were delighted to welcome the film crew and Michael Portillo last summer to film a segment for his show. You can see the Cathedral from the air during the opening credits, and then hear our head guide Janet tell Michael all about the building and its origins. You can watch the episode on BBC iPlayer.

The Cathedral and Current Restrictions

Sunday 13 June is the Second Sunday after Trinity. The 9.45am Cathedral Eucharist and 6pm Choral Evensong are both available to book places for through the Cathedral Box Office. All are welcome to these services and booking is essential. For those unable to join us in the Cathedral these and all our other services are streamed live on our YouTube Channel.

Thank you to everyone who supported the Choristers with their Fundraising Car Wash last Sunday – they raised a fantastic £500, well done to them all for their hard work, but we heard a fun time was had by all.

Details of all our services and opening times are on the Cathedral Diary please do check there for the most up to date information. We continue to stream our services via our YouTube Channel

The Cathedral Shop is open Tuesday – Saturdays, 9.30am – 3.30pm, and Seasons Cafe is open Tuesday – Saturday 9am – 3pm and Sunday 9am – 12 noon. We encourage all our community to support Seasons who, like many businesses, have been severely affected by restrictions we have had throughout Covid. We are really looking forward to seeing Carla and the team on a daily basis and would ask you to consider Seasons as your place to meet friends for lunch or coffee in these coming weeks as all hospitality venues start to open up. 

Friday 25 June is National Cream Tea Day – why not treat yourself to a delicious cream tea in the Cathedral for just £5.50 per person, you can book your tickets here.

We are celebrating our Diamond Anniversary year, during the course of this next year there will be many services and events with our Diamond Anniversary in mind, and we hope that you will be able to participate in them with us.

We are still facing difficult times with the Covid crisis, and encourage all visitors to the Cathedral, whether for the shop, services or using the grounds, to continue to follow the Covid secure regulations that are in place for your own safety and that of our staff and volunteers; we are all in this situation together and every one of us has a vital role to play to continue to protect ourselves and others. Please continue to show kindness and understanding to others and as we continue living with the current conditions together.

The Very Reverend Dianna Gwilliams
Dean of Guildford
