• Welcome to the Bradford Cathedral website. We are on the east side of the new Westfield development, just a few minutes walk from both of Bradford’s stations. The Cathedral is the oldest building in the City but it also has a wonderful 20th century extension. Ancient and modern. Why not visit us and discover Bradford’s ‘hidden gem’ and spend a few quiet moments in reflection and prayer?
    The Very Reverend Jerry Lepine
    Dean of Bradford
    An eventful year in the life of the Cathedral and City

    The Cathedral has three major projects starting this year whilst works continue on Cathedral Halls (The Brathay Trust) and Clergy House (Bradford Council). The Council’s Public Realm works (linked to Westfield’s new Broadway Shopping Centre) also see major improvements to the pavements and roads on Stott Hill and Church Bank.   More ...

    Any project is bound to cause some disruption at some point. Whilst the building and grounds will remain open for the duration, there will be times when vehicle access may be prevented and enjoyment of the peace and beauty of the site will be marred by noise and scaffolding. We therefore ask for your gracious forbearance at this time.

    Work starts Monday 6 July to create the new pedestrian entrance off Stott Hill.  This will require most of the northeast lawn to be fenced off, although access will be maintained through the existing Stott Hill gate.  Visitors are encouraged to use the lower northwest lawns or those in front of the Tower.



    Friday 3 July to Friday 14 August 2015

    Bradford-born artist Doug Binder, who studied at Bradford College before moving to the Royal College of Art, is exhibiting at the Cathedral from 3 July to 14 August.  This exciting new exhibition entitled LIFE includes recent portraits, together with prints from his ‘Horse’ and abstract ‘Roman’ series.  His work always displays inspiring composition and gorgeous use of sumptuous colour and tone.  More...

    Thursday 16 July to Saturday 18 July

    It is with regret that we inform you that the Summer Shakespeare performance has been cancelled this year.  This is due to the Precinct Project which will severely limit access to the grounds over the summer months.  We are sorry, but the good news is that ACT have already booked July next year and we will let you know the moment we know which play they will be performing!
