Guildford Cathedral

Stag Hill, Guildford GU2 7UP

Cathedral NaveThe cathedral stands in a commanding spot on Stag Hill — so named because the Kings of England used to hunt here — and its solid red brick outline is visible for miles around with the bricks themselves being made from clay taken from the hill on which it stands.

Guildford was made a diocese in its own right in 1927, and work on its new cathedral, designed by Sir Edward Maufe, began nine years later, with the foundation stone being laid by Dr Cosmo Gordon Lang, Archbishop of Canterbury in 1936. Construction was interrupted by the Second World War, and the cathedral was not consecrated until 17 May 1961.

How to get to the venue

The cathedral is located just off the A3 on the outer edges of the city next door to the University of Surrey campus. Please see the Cathedral's website: www.guildford-cathedral.org/visit/directions for comprehensive details of how to get to the venue. There is a ramp (now at a much shallower angle) for wheelchair access at the main west end entrance.
