FREE ENTRY. There has been a church on this site for over 1,000 years. Originally a Saxon Minster, then rebuilt as a Benedictine Abbey, this magnificent building is a national treasure in the heart of the city and has been the Cathedral Church of the Diocese of Chester since 1541.

From Norman arches to gothic columns, spectacular fourteenth century woodcarvings, the medieval shrine of St. Werburgh and spectacular stained glass. The Cloisters and Church form one of the most complete medieval monastic complexes in the country.

Chester Cathedral demonstrates the skills of craftsmen over the centuries and is a place where history has happened.

Visitors can take an audio tour, visit the 13th Century Refectory Café and browse the Cathedral Gift Shop, which has a wonderful range of music, jewellery, books, cards, toys, confectionery, gifts and souvenirs for all seasons and occasions.

Groups are welcome by appointment and tours can be specially tailored to include coffee, tea or lunch to make a great day out for your organisation.

Disabled access and facilities including toilets and induction loop.

For more information, regular service times and details of forthcoming events and concerts and online booking, please see the Chester Cathedral website.
