Planning your visit
All are warmly welcome to visit Newcastle Cathedral – whether you wish to join us for worship, seeking some space for peace and reflection; exploring the Cathedral’s treasures or visiting Café 16.
The Cathedral offers a wealth of events and activities throughout the year which you can view on our ‘Whats On’ page. Our monuments, stained-glass windows and ledger stones tell vivid stories of Newcastle’s heritage and the Cathedral’s deep history which you can read about through the interpretation around the Cathedral.
Located in the heart of the city, Newcastle Cathedral is a great place for children to learn, play and explore.
