'Every journey begins with a single step'
This August, the Labyrinth will be returning to Gloucester Cathedral and you're invited to walk it and join an 1000-year long tradition. It will be in the Nave and there for you to explore for as long or as little time as you like during normal Cathedral opening hours.
A labyrinth is a winding path used for meditation and prayer. Pilgrims have been walking labyrinths for thousands of years; this symbolic journey represents the path to God, enlightenment or your deepest self. It enables us, in the midst of the busyness of life, to be still and focus our thoughts and feelings. The labyrinth at Gloucester Cathedral is an exact replica of the one in Chartres Cathedral in France, which is thought to date from around 1200.
The labyrinth is free to take part in, with no tickets required, but donations to the Cathedral are welcome. As you walk it, try to let go of your fears, worries and concerns, and you may wish to take time to pray once you reach the centre.
Please note that the Labyrinth will not be available on 15 and 16 August due to special events taking place in the Cathedral. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your understanding.
