Scout Association

We run Annual Faith Badge Mornings in conjunction with the Scout Association for Beaver Scouts and Cub Scouts.  The sessions include the presentation of badges in the stunning surroundings of Chester Cathedral.


‘The cub scouts enjoyed the stories- the lady at the well and the information about the picture by the altar - dressing up and, of course, gaining their badges’

There are many ways to support the Cathedral from donations through to buying a gift or simply enjoying a coffee in the Refectory. We welcome your support in whatever form it takes.

Refectory Cafe


The Refectory, built in the 13th century, was the dining hall for the 40 monks who belonged to the community at the time. The Refectory is open from 9:30 - 4:30 and a delicious lunch menu, fabulous cakes and free Wi-Fi!
