About the cathedral
For centuries Portsmouth Cathedral has witnessed wars and peace, famous marriages, and been bombed and rebuilt.
The Cathedral’s light coloured stone and towering bronze doors change their hue with the seasons and with the rising and setting of the sun. Its understated beauty inspires the many visitors that come here.
The Cathedral is a centre of mission and prayer, where worship, formal and informal, is offered to God every day of the year. One of our most valued aspects is a welcoming and friendly atmosphere whatever your beliefs and interests.
A varied programme of art exhibitions and lunchtime recitals is on offer. Parts of the Cathedral open to visitors are accessible to all and there are full facilities for the disabled.
Explore Portsmouth Cathedral where new and old embrace in a seamless portrayal of history and where faith and culture stand side by side. Entrance is free.
