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. We are pleased to be able to offer 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.

This Sunday, 26 January, at 3pm all are invited to our Christingle Service which is a short informal service of hope and light in aid of the Children’s Society followed by refreshments. Please invite your friends, neighbours and extended families – all are welcome to join us.  Each child will be presented with a Christingle to take home.

Cathedral Tots is back on Wednesday 5 February, this is a short informal service for parents/carers and their little ones in the Nave. Join us for music, craft activities, story time and free play; plus the opportunity to chat over refreshments. Following on from that is the Family Fun Day on Wednesday 19 February during half term.

Our current art exhibition is Creative Coverage. This exhibition features work by Susie Lidstone, Mary Burtenshaw, Sheeba Kukreja, Ingrid Skoglund, Wendy Yeo, Stuart Stanley, Nerissa Deeks, Andrew Halliday, Kate Findlay and Jennifer Wright, and can be viewed until 13 February. 

We’re pleased to have released this year’s Coffee Concert program, details of which can be found here. These free concerts happen once a month on a Thursday and are the ideal opportunity to meet with friends, enjoy the music and maybe even stay for lunch afterwards in our café. 

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
