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

The Cathedral is open for Individual prayer usually from Tuesday – Saturday 11am – 2pm and Sunday 1.30pm – 3.30pm. Occasionally these times do change and these can be confirmed on the Cathedral Diary.

On Sundays we have a 9.45am Cathedral Eucharist and usually a Choral Evensong at 6pm. During term time there is Choral Evensong during the week on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday evenings. Days and times are subject to change, so please do check the Cathedral Diary for the most up to date information. We continue to stream our services via our YouTube Channel. Please check the Cathedral Diary for times of services as they can change.

The Cathedral Shop is open Tuesday – Saturdays, 10am – 2pm. Please do come and see our Shop team – they are excited to welcoming you back to see the exciting new stock that has arrived for the Spring.

On 17 May Seasons Cafe will re-open. 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. 

We encourage all visitors to the Cathedral, whether for the shop, services or using the grounds, to continue to follow the 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
