Visiting the Cathedral

Visiting the Cathedral

For reasons of safety in light of the high Coronavirus case-level locally and of the Government’s advice to “stay at home”, the Cathedral is now closed for visiting, private prayer, and public worship. Please join our services online.

The Precincts are open to the public, free of charge, as an outside space for exercise. Our Cathedral Shop is open online only. The Cathedral Lodge and Library reading room remain closed.

Security

The Cathedral takes the safety and security of all our worshippers and visitors very seriously. If you are coming to the Cathedral, please be aware that as a condition of entry we reserve the right to search any bags or luggage on entry. Our Cathedral Constables and Visits Teams are there for your safety, so please do cooperate fully with all security checks and support these vital members of our team as they carry out important work to keep us all safe and sound. An exception will be made for medically necessary items after thorough proper inspection at a designated area set aside for this purpose.

Our bag policy

Regrettably, we do not have a left luggage facility and we would prefer you do not bring large bags into the Cathedral. If you bring any luggage or bags, you must not leave them unattended as they may be treated as suspicious items and could be destroyed.
