About Guildford Cathedral

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. As well as the rhythm of daily worship the Cathedral is a wonderful modern building, with an interior bathed in light providing a rich contrast to the strong and determined exterior.

The People's Cathedral was completed through the generosity of thousands of 'brick-givers' and that tradition lives on through the lives of the vibrant community of all who work and live and visit here. Whenever you visit you will be very welcome.

We look forward to seeing you.
