What does Newcastle Cathedral mean to you?

Posted on: July 17th, 2018

For over 900 years a house of worship has graced the heart of the city of Newcastle. Situated in historic ‘old’ Newcastle, Newcastle Cathedral stands as a beacon of hope for everyone visiting, working and living in and around the city: an open place of sanctuary, hospitality, welcome and worship for all those who wish to make it their home.

Newcastle Cathedral is a remarkable building with a rich history and heritage. It is packed with monuments, ledger (tomb) stones and stained glass windows each telling stories of the real Newcastle and its fascinating people: magnificent testimonies to our glorious (and not so glorious) past and therefore inspiration for its future.

Take a look at our new video to learn more!


This is an extremely exciting time to be part of Newcastle Cathedral’s future as it progresses with its ambitious £6 million Heritage Lottery Funded Common Ground in Sacred Space project to transform the nave, renew visitor facilities and reshape external spaces. The work will reclaim the Cathedral’s historic role within the community, meeting the needs of new and diverse audiences including the marginalised and vulnerable, residents and tourists, and will ensure the Cathedral’s sustainability for many decades to come.
