Pilgrims and visitors have made their way to Canterbury Cathedral since the Middle Ages. It remains one of the most visited places in the country, and, just as importantly, a working, living church and community. Visitors have always been made welcome in the ancient tradition of Benedictine hospitality. We continue this tradition, warmly inviting you to share with us the beauty of one of the great holy places of Christendom.

We are delighted to welcome congregations to worship within the Cathedral. Please see below for details of our in-person services.

Daily Morning Prayer (Crypt) 07.30 (Mon-Fri); 09.30 (Sat-Sun & Bank Holidays)

*These services will also be live streamed on the Cathedral's website and YouTube channel.

As a courtesy to other worshippers and Cathedral staff, please wear a face covering when in close proximity to others. Please see our Worship FAQs for further information.

UPDATE: 19 July 2021

For the comfort, safety and reassurance of our worshippers and staff, Canterbury Cathedral will continue to maintain a number of Covid mitigation measures, including:

  • Provision of hand sanitiser stations
  • The wearing of face coverings when in close proximity to others
  • Delivery of an enhanced cleaning regime in busier areas.

Canterbury Cathedral is a very large space with excellent natural ventilation, which is a key factor in reducing the risk of COVID infection.

Following updated government guidance, you will notice a few changes to our worship:

  • Congregational singing is now allowed.
  • You are no longer required to seat 2m away from others, although you may wish to space yourself from others and we ask you to respect the wishes of others for space when you choose where to sit.
