Birmingham Cathedral is a fine example of English Baroque architecture and has been a place of Christian worship since 1715. It is the oldest building in the city still used for its original purpose, and is home to four remarkable stained-glass windows, designed by Edward Burne-Jones.
Our windows attract followers of Pre-Raphaelite artwork from across the world, and work to conserve them is ongoing to enable them to be enjoyed for generations to come.
We are the third smallest cathedral in the UK in terms of size, but our central location sees around 20,000 people a day pass through our surrounding square – locally known as ‘pigeon park’.
Around 12,000 visitors each month attend services and visit us to enjoy the beautiful building. Entry is free and the cathedral is open daily.
The cathedral choir is made up of professional adult musicians and choristers from many different schools – their diversity reflecting the diversity of the city. They sing five services a week during term times, in various formations. The Choir also gives regular concerts in the Cathedral, in parish churches in our diocese and further afield.
