It costs £2,000 per day to keep the Cathedral open

Carlisle Cathedral is not centrally funded. We rely on the financial support of our visitors, worshippers, and the public at large. Please support us if you can. All donations are used to maintain this magnificent building and our ministry and to keep our doors open for this generation and those to come. We thank you for your support.



You can also make a donation specifically to our music department through the Carlisle Cathedral Development Trust, including our choirs, choristers and music programmes
