About Gloucester Cathedral

A medieval jewel and a glorious sacred space

1000 years of history and architecture are just waiting to be explored. The extraordinary fan-vaulted medieval cloisters and Great East Window are national treasures. King Edward II is buried here and the Coronation of King Henry III took place here too, so you are guaranteed a right royal welcome any time of year.

An exciting year ahead
This year things may look a little different during your visit as the Cathedral embarks on a major £6.3 million project ‘Pilgrim’. The car park will be  transformed into a beautiful public space, fully restoring the 15th century Lady Chapel and turning the Cathedral into a ‘greener’ more accessible place for everyone. With this in mind be sure to try one of the new Scaffolding Tours to experience this exciting work, up close and personal!

Daily services will still take place four times a day, every day, so do join them, particularly at Choral Evensong to hear the glorious sound of the Cathedral Choir.

Things to see and do

Take one of the many tours including General Cathedral Tours, Tower Tours, Crypt Tours, Whispering Gallery, Library Visits and much more. Guided, self-guided and group tour options are available.

Families have plenty to see and do, including the Whispering Gallery, the Giant Jigsaw, Children’s Trails and of course not forgetting the chance to see where Harry Potter, Sherlock, Dr Who and Hollow Crown were filmed. With a full programme of concerts, recitals, talks and exhibitions there is something for everyone to enjoy at Gloucester Cathedral.

Please check the Cathedral Website before your visit to check for any closures or cancellations.
