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


Cafe and Restaurant

Seasons Café and Kitchen are operating a delivered dine in service

With any small business, the first lockdown hit Seasons Café & Kitchen hard. However, as well as being part of the Surry Drive campaign during the first lockdown, feeding hundreds of care givers every week, they embraced all the changes necessary to ensure that they re-opened and offered their customers a covid-save environment to meet people and eat delicious food.

Due to the Cathedral moving into Tier 4 of Covid-19 restrictions Seasons Cafe is currently closed. They are offering a delivered dine in service for Friday and Saturdays. Further details are available here.

Café Manager Carla Williams said

We’re disappointed that we have had to shut the cafe again but are keen to do all we can to assist in keeping covid-19 under control and realise how important it is that all of us do our part. We will continue to offer our delivered dine in service on Fridays and Saturdays, please check our website as these offers change from week to week. We hope that with the vaccination now being approved it will not be too long before we can open again and in time not only welcome you with your families, but also be a place for you to meet up with your friends again. We look forward to seeing everyone very soon.
