Ripon Cathedral is one of the oldest sites of continuous Christian worship in Britain.
This website introduces you to the church founded over 1300 years ago by St Wilfrid, but it's not all about the past. Ripon Cathedral is a vibrant centre at the heart of the local community and across the region. These pages will give you a glimpse of the Cathedral's busy life, as well as highlighting our ongoing duty of hospitality to all our visitors and our witness to the Christian faith embodied in this place and lived out through the centuries of its existence.
We hope you will want to discover all this for yourselves at first hand. If you have not yet visited Ripon and its magnificant Cathedral, come soon; and if you have, come again!
We look forward to welcoming you.
The Chapter of Ripon Cathedral wishes to appoint a Director of Operations as its senior lay member of staff. Further details and links to the application pack may be found on our Situations Vacant page by clicking this link.
This year's St Wilfrid Lectures explore expressions of 21st century community. The 2013 series brings together a range of speakers to challenge us to think about issues including community cohesion, multiculturalism, inter-religious dialogue, school communities, lessons learnt from living in community, the European experiment and the voluntary sector.
Each lecture begins at 7pm and entrance is free. More information is on our St Wilfrid Lectures pages.
The Cathedral is open to visitors between 8.30am - 6pm daily and our guide books are available in English, Chinese, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Norwegian, Polish, Russian and Spanish.
Entry to the Cathedral is FREE, though we do rely on the generosity of our visitors and appreciate donations. In order to enhance your visit, Guides and Welcomers are on duty in the Cathedral daily between 10 am and 4.30 pm. Please come and talk to them - they will be delighted to answer your questions.
The Cathedral Giftshop is open 9.30am to 5pm Monday to Saturday and 12pm - 5pm on Sundays.
