Opening Times

Gloucester Cathedral Opening Times

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

During The King's School term time the main Cathedral is closed Monday to Friday between 8.45am and 9.15am for school assembly.

Monday - Saturday we recommend visiting between 10.30-4.00, and on Sundays the recommended visiting times are between 11.45am and 2.45pm. This is when our Cathedral volunteers are available to welcome you and answer questions. You can also take a guided tour of the Cathedral.

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

The primary purpose of the Cathedral is as a place of worship, this means that from time to time access to the building is restricted due to special services, weddings or funerals.  We try to provide visitors with access to as much of the Cathedral site as possible, but on occasion the building may be closed completely.

To avoid disappointment, it’s best to check the Cathedral calendar when planning your visit. You can also email us.
