Guildford Cathedral is the People’s Cathedral - a place of welcome, worship, inspiration and engagement for people of all ages. There is no charge for entry. 

At the beginning of October we hosted Poppy Fields, which was a stunning illumination in the Cathedral.  

Poppy Fields was the start of our commemorations for Remembrance, and we now look ahead to the Schools Workshops for Remembrance from 5 November and then our own Remembrance Commemorations on 10 and 11 November. There are many activities happening on the Cathedral grounds that afternoon including WW1 re-enactors, an abseil, military vehicles, and the Poppy Parachute Display Team. The afternoon concludes with an Evensong for Remembrance followed by the illumination of falling poppies on the outside of the Cathedral.

On Remembrance Sunday our Service of Remembrance is at 10.00am - all are welcome to attend.

All the family are welcome to visit the Cathedral. There are tours available for adults, and also special interest tours for children of all ages - please ask the Guides for help with suitable activities for your child.

The current What's On is now available, with details of activities happening August - October.

Our Guided Tours and Tower Tour dates, and details of booking, can be found here

We look forward to welcoming you.

With all good wishes

The Very Reverend Dianna Gwilliams
