Different opening hours during the Three Choirs Festival

Monday 17 July - Wednesday 2 August

We are delighted that many of the events forming part of this year's Three Choirs Festival will be hosted here in the Cathedral. However, this does mean that between Monday 17 July and Wednesday 2 August, visiting and worship will look a little different and our opening hours will vary, so we strongly recommend checking before you travel.

A daily timetable, which includes information about our opening times, worship and guided tours, can be downloaded here.

  • Parking

    We are sorry that due to limited space, parking in the Cathedral Close is restricted to pass holders only.

    There are eight disabled parking spaces which are for use by Blue Badge holders on a first come first served basis.

    However, there are several public car parks within easy walking distance of the Cathedral.

    To find out more please download our parking guide or click here for up-to-date information.

  • Arriving by Public Transport

    The Cathedral is located in Gloucester Town Centre, so the best way to get here is by public transport.

    We are a 10-15 minute walk from both the train and bus stations. You can also use Gloucester’s Park and Ride.
