One of the jewels of north west England, Carlisle Cathedral has stood in the centre of the city for almost 900 years – a place of worship and reflection, a place of living faith and community.

We are open every day to pilgrims and visitors of all faiths and none. We look forward to meeting you and sharing with you our fascinating stories.

Dean of Carlisle
