This short video looks at some of the Cathedral’s architectural highlights and many treasures:
The Nave has been transformed, with flexible seating, underfloor heating and new furniture for services and events. Visitor facilities include a shop area, café and improved disabled access.
Our interpretation panels and digital screens are designed to bring 900 years of history to life, chronicling the development of the Cathedral as the ancient heart of a modern city.
Follow the paved ribbon of ‘Newcastle Beatitudes’ (blessings) around the churchyards to our beautifully landscaped terrace. Here you can find space to unwind and learn more about the Cathedral in the context of the city’s historic quarter.
An immersive audio-light display tells the stories of some of the people commemorated in the Cathedral’s ledger stones. Over 100 of these historic grave covers have been protected and conserved as part of the redevelopments.
Our audio-light display, Stories in the Stones, begins at the following times, running for approximately 8 minutes.
|Sunday||12:15pm, 1:15pm, 2:15pm|
|Monday||11.15am, 12:15pm, 3:15pm|
|Tuesday – Friday||11.15am, 12:15pm, 1:15pm, 3:15pm|
|Saturday||11.15am, 12:15pm, 1:15pm, 2:15pm|
Please note: Exceptions to these times may occasionally occur. If Stories in the Stones isn’t running, please ask a Welcomer for further information.
Alongside our regular pattern of daily Christian worship and choral music, visitors can look forward to an exciting programme of events and activities inspired by the city and the Cathedral’s heritage.
Come and join us as a volunteer at Newcastle Cathedral. We have a range of opportunities available to suit a wide variety of interests.
