General Information

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.

Please note that, thanks to a major grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund and other generous donors, we are currently embarking on an exciting project to repair and re-lead the Nave roof and carry out restoration work to stone and stained glass on Nave and Western Towers. Inevitably, this means scaffolding and some disturbance. However, the Cathedral and grounds are huge and much of it is unaffected by the work. Seeing the scaffolding going up actually makes one realise how amazing it is that such a huge building was constructed without the modern equipment and army of engineers, architects and consultants we now have. For more information, visit the Canterbury Journey pages.
