Countless generations have played their part in creating and preserving this magnificent building; now it is time for us to do our bit.

Dr Rowan Williams, 104th Archbishop of Canterbury

Canterbury Cathedral is one of the nation’s greatest heritage buildings but receives no direct funding from Government or The Church of England. We are dependent on the generosity of individuals, charitable trusts and other partners to help the Cathedral meet the costs of major restoration works and continue to inspire millions of visitors and pilgrims each year with its 1,400 year old story.

The Cathedral has established a separate charitable trust to assist its fundraising efforts – Canterbury Cathedral Trust.
