Overview

The Cathedral is Sheffield's oldest building, the ancient heart of a great city, where God has been worshipped for over a thousand years. It has watched Sheffield grow and develop over the centuries, and it tells a story - of great women and men, of wars, of industry and commerce, and of the people who have lived in Sheffield. Here people have prayed, made music, offered hospitality and cared for the poor, as they do still today. The building reflects its many uses, with the traditional worship spaces including the grand high altar and the quiet crypt chapel, but also the busy conference centre, and the Archer Project area where the homeless and vulnerable find what they need Here every visitor will find something to interest them. You can book a special visit, or just call in and explore. You may find that a service is happening, in which case you can join in or not as you choose. Everyone is invited - Sheffield Cathedral is a place for all people. We are open every day of the year.

As a long time resident of Sheffield I am ashamed to say I have never been to the cathedral to look round as opposed to attending a service. I was amazed to find out how old parts of the building are and the history. It...More

I stopped in in a tour of Sheffield. I was amazed at the stained glass in the cathedral. There appeared to be different color saturation levels which could have been from different times the glass was put in.

Well worth a visit and easily accessed from the city centre. Beautiful architecture and windows. The Shrewsbury Chapel was interesting and poignant.

Interesting Cathedral, that is not too big. Lots of history, attractive architecture and wonderful acoustics...attend a service of worship or a concert to experience the best of this cathedral and its music.

I've lived in Sheffield for over 40 years and can't calculate how many times I've passed the Cathedral! Yet have probably only visited a dozen or so times. And, each time, I visit, I'm impressed by the calm and serenity within this beautiful building. If...More

All are made very welcome free of charge in this beautiful old cathedral. The ancient building is of course amazing but it has also been extended in recent times, the modern extension fits well with the ancient building. The new stain glass is particularly attractive....More

We visited the cathedral for the first time this week. We were immediately impressed by the architecture. Inside is a mix of old and new. The older sections have been maintained and refreshed in recent years, whilst the newer section still feels in keeping with...More
