Chester Cathedral is many things to many people: a vibrant community of worship, an ancient abbey, an archaeological treasure, a cultural hub, a centre of musical excellence, a unique blend of modern and medieval history and a Visitor Attraction Award Winner for 2015.
In 2015, 268,000 visitors spent time at the cathedral taking in the tours and activities on offer and we would like to welcome new and regular visitors to the cathedral. With new and exciting activities on offer for adults and children, Chester Cathedral is well worth a visit.
