Opening Times and Information


We welcome you to Bradford Cathedral for visiting or for personal prayer.

Our current opening hours are usually 10am - 4pm Monday - Saturday, except Wednesday when we're open from 12noon - 4pm.

Following updates to the guidance, we are recommending the use of hand sanitiser to all those visiting Bradford Cathedral, which is available at points throughout the building, alongside the wearing of face coverings, unless you are exempt.

You may find the Cathedral gates open at other times for services or events. This is not for general admission. There will be a sign at the gate informing people of this situation. Regrettably, due to the Covid restrictions in place you may be asked to leave. If this occurs, we apologise for any distress this may cause.

There may be occasions when events or services take place that will change our opening hours and on rare occasions the Cathedral may be closed for visitors. Please see our calendar for further details. This calendar is updated on a regular basis, so we advise you to check before visiting. If you have any specific queries, we recommend you e-mail the cathedral on or send a message to us on social media.

During opening hours, other activities may be taking place in the Cathedral, and certain areas may be inaccessible. You are welcome to use one of our side chapels for personal prayer.

Please note: our hearing loop is currently out of action. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.



Attending Bradford Cathedral for worship

For acts of worship, we are continuing to work to a limited capacity in the building and advance booking will apply to services, which can be done through the website. We will continue to offer an online stream of our Sunday morning Eucharist and other key services.

We will be operating social distancing and encouraging the use of hand sanitiser and face coverings, unless exempt.
