His Royal Highness Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh

10 June 1921 — 9 April 2021

The Dean and the Chapter and the entire cathedral community extend our deepest condolences to Her Majesty the Queen and her family following the death of His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh. We assure her of our prayers for her and her family in their time of grief and our prayers of thanksgiving for the long life of service Prince Philip gave to our nation and to the Commonwealth. May he rest in peace and rise in glory.

An online Book of Condolence has been set up at Guildford Cathedral for any members of the community who would like to add their name in thanksgiving for the life of Prince Philip and the lasting contribution he has made to the life of our nation and the Commonwealth.

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


Family engagement, Schools and Resources

Open to all, the Cathedral is a place to explore and learn.

There is a rich variety of opportunities for people of all ages to visit and be inspired. School visits are encouraged. We offer seasonal workshops and also bespoke visits. Please contact Becki Hartley at schools@guildford-cathedral.org to discuss your requirements. Family Fun Days, services of particular interest to children, summer picnics and visits to the Children’s Garden are just a few examples of what's on offer throughout the year. 

The Theological Library and the Guildford Cathedral Archives are a rich source of material for both informal and academic study. For churches, schools and established groups in our Diocese, our Resource Centre contains hundreds of objects which can be borrowed in order to support your work in church and schools.
