Project Pilgrim Phase Two: Beacon of Hope
Phase One of Project Pilgrim saw us transform a car park into a new green public space, as well as a beautiful setting for this extraordinary building. Creating a new welcome space and improving accessibility across the site, as well as introducing an award-winning interpretation scheme, has transformed the Cathedral into a world class heritage destination and increased visitor income. Lastly, conserving and re-presenting the “at risk” 15th century Lady Chapel has breathed new life into a tired part of the building.
In Phase Two our vision is to re-establish the Cathedral as a beacon of hope at the heart of the city and county. We will reveal our abbey history to inspire a sustainable future for all, working with partners to deliver against social responsibility priorities which make a difference to the lives of Gloucester’s diverse communities. We will ensure our catering and visitor facilities are as outstanding as the rest of the Cathedral and able to support our finances into the future.
