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.

Partner Attractions

Guildford Cathedral is proud to announce it is now partnering with local attractions to provide a unique insight into Surrey's heritage by visiting two venues in one day.

Guildford Cathedral and Watts Gallery

Spend a morning or afternoon at Watts Gallery and Artists' Village discovering the work of the great Victorian artist, G F Watts. Enjoy over 100 paintings and sculptures, plus a stunning Grade I chapel  before taking a short journey to Guildford Cathedral. Known as The People’s Cathedral, Guildford is an iconic Grade II* listed building, designed and built by Sir Edward Maufe during one of the most turbulent periods of the 20th Century.

Lunch and light refreshments can be enjoyed at both venues, with Seasons Café & Kitchen at the Cathedral providing one or two course meals.
