A tradition of welcome

Canterbury Cathedral has a tradition of visitor welcome that reaches back to the days of medieval pilgrimage. We continue this tradition today, and look forward to welcoming you.

We’ve introduced a range of new safety measures to ensure your wellbeing, including one-way routes, enhanced cleaning regimes, hand sanitiser stations, distanced seating, additional signage and floor markings, and PPE for our staff, volunteers and Constables as appropriate. We’ve also achieved the ‘We’re Good To Go’ official UK mark to signal that we follow Government and industry COVID-19 guidelines and have a process in place to maintain cleanliness and aid social distancing.
