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.

This cathedral is a bit of a suprise. From the outside it looks very small, however once inside you quickly realise there is a lot more to see than you expect. If you want to look around you should realise it is a very active church with lots going on throughout the week. You would do well to check their... More

Highlight the military chapel but some lovely stained glass (some almost pastel shades) in main body.

Visited for a Friday afternoon recital. Arrived early and was pleasantly surprised to find a Lantern Tower. This diffuses coloured light and is a joy to see it.

Sheffield's oldest building. Was interesting to learn the history behind the cathedral. Very impressive to look around. Spent at least an hour here. Plenty of stand alone digital displays giving information about items nearby. Guides were on hand to offer info if needed. On a downside if certain areas are cordoned off clearer barriers should be in place then curt... More

My wife and I visited this cathedral during our day in Sheffield City centre and both think it's one of the nicest cathedrals we've visited. We always make a point of looking inside the cathedral whenever we visit a city at home or abroad - so to say it's one of the nicest is high praise and highly recommended.

lovely cathedral with lots of stained glass windows modern porch area with heritage area and café at the side with its own stained glass window. Crypt and chapel with a lovely reredos and another chapel dedicated to war dead with the names on the seats. Lantern roof and steel nativity statue. Well worth a visit. Guides are available.

I pop in to the Cathedral regularly for quiet and prayer. Sometimes catch the evensong. Lots of history and its the church for central Sheffield. As well as liturgy and church services, the cathedral does a lot for the homeless through its Archer Project. There is a shop, toilets, hot drinks and guides to show you the interesting features.

We stopped into this church to pass a few minutes and spent an hour. The architecture, stained glass and displays area amazing. While it is a working church, you are permitted to wander almost anywhere. There is a cafe on site as well as a small shop that supports the church. The history of the cathedral is well explained b... More

Went into this cathedral to pass a few minutes and spent an hour! This is a working church that you can tour on your own when no services are being held. There are plenty of descriptive plaques explaining many of the displays. The architecture, stained glass and adornments are amazing as is the history. We are not much for touring... More
