About this church
The Cathedral is alive with a sense of story from its 13 centuries at the heart of Bradford.
This, the third church on the site, is 500 years old, with 20th century additions. Bradford's most ancient place of worship is friendly, peaceful and fascinating, with many special features. The Cathedral is home to some of William Morris' earliest stained glass. There is bronze and embroidery designed by Ernest Sichel. Sculpture by Flaxman, Alan Collins and John Shaw, and windows and woodcarvings delight the eye, as well as art exhibitions and events in the Cathedral.
Guided tours, and reflective pilgrim tours can be booked ahead, and the Cathedral offers an exiciting programme for schools and colleges.
Bradford was the birthplace of Delius, and is still a place of music. The music of many cultures and traditions express the vitality of this immensely varied city. The Cathedral has a fine tradition of music, with a rich heritage of choral and organ music to explore and enjoy in a regular pattern of services and organ recitals. It is also a wonderful venue for chamber concerts, including an annual series during Autumn and Winter.
