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.
Update: 7 April 2021We are delighted to welcome congregations back for worship within the Cathedral. Please see below for details of our in-person services. The Cathedral is closed for visiting but the Precincts are open to the public, free of charge, as an outside space for exercise. Our Cathedral Shop is open online only.
