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.
