Welcome to English Cathedrals

Soaring spires, spectacular vaulted ceilings and a rich spiritual and historical heritage, our cathedrals are wonders of architecture and sanctuaries of peace. With fascinating treasures and secrets spanning a thousand years, they offer a window on Britain’s history, while the daily rhythm of prayer and worship in every cathedral is at the core of their mission.

 

2020 Year of Cathedrals, Year of Pilgrimage, sees a remarkable number of individual cathedral anniversaries and initiatives that will help to tell their stories, past and present. There will also be a host of new pilgrim routes leading to cathedrals, highlighting the importance of spiritual, mental and physical well-being.

 

2020 is Year of Cathedrals, Year of Pilgrimage.
