Visiting Guildford Cathedral

Guildford Cathedral has so much to offer the visitor. As well as an inspiring and peaceful building the Cathedral offers a whole range of attractions from guided tours to enjoying a cup of tea and a cake with friends.

The Cathedral extends a warm welcome to visitors of all ages all year round, from the start of morning services to the end of Evensong each day.

 


Donations to the Cathedral from visitors are welcomed as these help towards our maintenance and running costs (we receive no regular state funding). There is a small fee for group visits.
