Chester Cathedral is at the heart of the city centre and welcomes all who come to visit. With a history spanning across 1, 000 years there’s something for everyone to discover.
We are a free to enter building but donations are welcomed.
The cathedral receives no direct government funding and needs almost £3, 000 every day just to keep the building running.
A donation of £3.00 per person is suggested which goes directly to the maintenance, upkeep and running costs of the building.
If you are a UK tax payer you can increase your donation by 25p per £1 at no extra cost to yourself. Just ask at the admissions desk or fill in a Gift Aid envelope at a donation point.
