About Us

For over 1000 years, people have been gathering in this holy place to offer their prayers and praise to Almighty God. We are located right in the centre of the city, surrounded by shops and businesses, with people passing our doors as they go about their daily life. Many of those people stop by to light a candle, say a prayer, or spend a moment of stillness and calm. 

We’re a smallish Cathedral in national terms, but there’s still a lot of activity. Come to a concert, or a coffee morning – or drop in on one of our exhibitions. Place your book orders with our shop.

We look forward to welcoming you to Wakefield Cathedral soon.
