Guildford Cathedral - a warm-hearted community open to God, open to all.

The Cathedral is usually open for visitors between 8am and 5.30pm every day.

The Cathedral is open for tours for all the family, with special Childrens’ Tours available. 

Whether you are visiting us as a tourist attraction or for a service or event, the Cathedral Shop offers a delightful range of gifts and church goods, and Seasons café serves breakfast through to afternoon tea and snacks. Both are usually open seven days a week and the teams within look forward to welcoming you.

Next week we begin our Schools Advent Workshops where we will welcome children from across the diocese as we prepare for advent. Looking ahead, Our Advent Carol Service takes place on Sunday 1 December – this is a popular service that all are invited to attend, with music sung by all our Cathedral Choir.

On 22 and 23 November we hold our annual Christmas Fair in the Cathedral, giving you an opportunity to get ready for Christmas with a wide selection of gifts to purchase, either for yourself or someone else. If you are looking for a special gift for family and friends this Christmas, why not purchase them tickets for Star of Wonder? Further details of this Illumination in the Cathedral can be found here – it’s going to be very popular and advance ticket purchases are encouraged. 

Our services are listed here and everyone is welcome to attend them. The current What's On is now available, with details of activities happening November – January.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Cathedral.

The Very Reverend Dianna Gwilliams
