Gloucester Cathedral Opening Times

The Cathedral is open to visitors 365 days. Our usual opening times are between 7.30am and 6pm.

During school term time the building is closed Monday to Friday between 8.45am and 9.15am for school assembly.

On Sundays the recommended visiting times are between 11.45am and 2.45pm. This is when our Cathedral volunteers will be available to welcome you, answer your questions and give you a free tour if you would like one.

On Sundays services are held at 7.40am, 8am, 10.15am and 3pm. You are most welcome to join the services or to walk around quietly during these times. Please be aware that access to some areas of the building might be restricted during the services.

There may be days when access to some areas of the Cathedral is restricted due to services and other major events. To avoid disappointment it is best to either check our Limited Access & Cancellations page before your visit, or contact the Visitors' Officer, Claire Stefanyszn.
