A Welcome from the Dean

Carlisle Cathedral is one of the jewels of North West England and it celebrates its 900 anniversary in 2022. After standing on the border with Scotland for nine centuries, it has a lively story to tell. It may not be the best-known mediaeval Cathedral in England, it is certainly not the biggest, but it delights its many visitors.

Worship is offered here every day of the year, with sung Evensong in term time every day except Saturday. We hope you will come to visit us and enjoy the beauty of the Cathedral and its precinct – with its refurbished Fratry and eye-catching new Cafe.  There are fascinating stories of faith, hope and love to discover here. They point to God who is at work among us now and who welcomes all.

Mark Boyling, Dean of Carlisle
